About “Sling-Thing”

Sitting on the “Sling-Thing”, one finds themselves nestled comfortably amongst the softened-edge plywood which is supported by an unapologetically bold “x” shaped extruded frame.

The leather sling weaves through the plywood forming an accented detail when viewed from its sides and the generous armrests are wide enough to place objects such as a cold beverage.

With its flat packing design and ease of replacibility in components such as the sling and backrest upholstery, the “Sling-Thing” ensures a design which is mindfuly considered for sustainability from factory and beyond
