The AAL 81 Soft counterbalances the more formal expression of the aluminium swivel base with the softness and warmth of the quilted shell. Retaining the same compact body, shaped armrests, and simple, sculpted design that characterise the rest of the lounge series, this design features a functional swivel base with four legs that fan out from the centre. The base is available in polished or powder-coated aluminium, and the quilted shell is offered in a variety of upholstery options, providing a multitude of design combinations that give this series versatility in a wide range of corporate, public, and private contexts.
