When Bram Stoker wrote his famous “Dracula”, he had his protagonist clear in his mind: The count had a noble air and wore a long cloak with a large collar – typical for the time. 125 years later and we welcome our “Conte” armchair to the stage. An elegant wooden silhouette, with a characterful, wide seat and backrest reminiscent of the dark count’s cloak collar. The seat and back pieces are interlocked, using a technique based on the stabellen chairs which originated from the Swiss alpine region. Conte encourages an upright posture and its ergonomic design makes getting up and sitting down a comfortable movement. The upholstering of the seat and backrest follows the outer contours of the moulded shells. Conte is available in two wooden finishes: natural effect or soft black with a choice of fabric or black leather. Like every piece in the Röthlisberger collection, Conte was born to become a classic design. Or, as Bram Stoker would say: immortal.
