The Embrace Chair is a 2019 addition to the Embrace Series by Austrian design trio EOOS. Visually light in its expression, the chair has no armrests and will take up less space, fitting with any table. The design allows for great freedom of movement—a quality that enables users to communicate and interact freely. The upholstery is folded in two dimensions and the relaxed air of the upholstery contrasts the perfectly shaped wooden frame. It is a testimony to the unity between the craftsmanship and heritage of Carl Hansen & Søn and the innovative design approach of EOOS.
EOOS, a design collaborative established in Vienna in 1995 by Martin Bergmann (b. 1963), Gernot Bohmann (b. 1968), and Harald Gründl (b. 1967), was founded after the trio graduated from the Venetian University of Applied Arts.
Today, the internationally renowned collaborative approaches complex furniture, product and shop design challenges by examining past roots in a contemporary context. Called Poetical Analysis®, EOOS’s unique process focuses on myths, rituals and intuitive expressions, creating connections that extend beyond initial perceptions.
