And the winner is... Thonet’s lounge chair 808 is the winner of this year’s Muuuz International Award (MIAW) in the Furniture category. In the opinion of the MIAW jurors, the chair, designed by the Munich-based design duo Formstelle and introduced in 2015, is among the 38 most innovative products from 12 countries brought to market since 1 January 2014. With its soft, comfortable upholstery and a hidden adjustment mechanism, the chair 808 offers maximum seating comfort. The hard shell, shaped like a protective collar at the top, embraces the user and provides a sense of warmth and security. The colour and material concept developed by Formstelle especially for this chair offers numerous possibilities for individualisation.
The MIAW is presented annually by the ArchiDesignClub and the French Muuuz magazine. A jury consisting of 22,000 members – among them designers, architects and design professionals – selects the winners.
