EC01 Byron Upholstered Armchair by Philipp Mainzer and Florian Asche

This robust but very comfortable armchair was designed in 2009 by Philipp Mainzer and Florian Asche. It has a geometrical design and it features clear and well defined lines. Despite its robust look, it’s actually a very friendly and cozy piece of furniture. Also, the design is quite simple and this allows it to become a versatile item that could be easily integrated in a variety of different places.

The EC01 Byron, as it is called, could become a very comfy addition to a traditional or even modern living room, deck, terrace or it can be placed in public areas like waiting rooms or similar spaces. The EC01 Byron armchair is available in both leather and fabric finish and even custom-made fabric upholstery is available on demand. You can choose from a variety of textures, colors and patterns and this allows the client to have the freedom of choosing the one that he likes best or something that best matched with the already existing furniture that he has.

The armchair features a solid wood frame and armrests that measure 40 x 40 mm (1 5/8 x 1 5/8 inch). The upholstery is high quality foam that provides comfort and it can be easily removed for cleaning. The seat height is 400 mm (15 3/4 inch). EC01 Byron is a very cozy armchair and it seems especially suitable for reading corners or library areas.
