The clean lines and the simplicity of the design is striking, but a closer look reveals a number of design details that gives BASEL a very unique character. The lines of the seat are a fusion of several geometrical shapes that results in the unique shape of the seat that is both tight and soft at the same time. The characteristic backrest works as an integrated and discrete armrest and is an advanced 3-dimensional design element in spite of its minimalistic look. The visible separation between back and seat makes it possible to mix colours and materials and allows the interior designer to work with BASEL in all kinds of environments.
