About the ProductJima is a sleek, expressive chair that will fit seamlessly into different words – an office for instance, and a home for sure. Particularly noteworthy is the single, flowing line running from the top of the back, via the arms to the bottom of the seat. This makes it appear as if the seat cushion is locked in an embrace, providing ergonomic perfection and maximum comfort. Norguet: ‘The design concept for the Jima was inspired by the Artifort Kalm armchair from 2015. Adding a multifunctional set of chairs, which is what Jima is, to this family opens up new possibilities. This expressive chair is the perfect match for public spaces. You could group several Jimas together in a restaurant, workplace or conference room, lending the space a unique sense of style.’
