With imma, the classic cross-frame chair becomes a variable modular system. The solid cross construction replaces the surrounding frame and, together with the bent rear feet, creates a high degree of stability.
As the seat is screwed on at a distance, it appears to float and can be easily replaced. The 3D moulded plywood of the seat and backrest gives it a light appearance. Apart from being available as a chair, with or without armrests, imma is produced as a stool in three different seat heights. Finishes are possible in Horgenglarus black, natural beech, oak and ash, stained in various shades of brown, opaquely lacquered in one of the 13 colours from the collection or any freely selectable combination - both single-coloured and two-coloured. The chair can be equipped with conventional upholstery or all models with a natural wool-felt covering.
