Vuelta Lounge is a sofa designed by Jaime Hayon for the brand Wittmann, with wooden frame with moulded wooden shell and a foam padding upholstered in fabric, velvet or leather. The structure is powder coated and bronze, dark grey, black grey, polished chrome, black chrome.
Rotation, turning, return: these are the meanings of the Spanish word Vuelta. The backrest rotates playfully around the corner, becomes the armrest, continues on to the sitter – or recliner – in order to enclose them, as in an embrace. The special shape is divided by expertly crafted seam patterns. The designer has enlarged the Vuelta “family” by adding three new elements to the collection, Sofa Lounge Island, Sofa Lounge 241 and the Sofa Lounge 298.
Sofa Lounge 241 – L. 94.88 inch – P. 44.88 inch – H. 30.31 inch
L. 241 cm – P. 114 cm – H. 77 cm
“No man is an island,” as John Donne wrote in the 17th century. These days, it is often all but impossible to find a few minutes to escape for some time out. So we have become masters of creating islands for ourselves. Our homes are our main places of refuge and should offer us at least one such island. This is where Vuelta Lounge Island comes in: perfectly proportioned, it stands as solid as rock in our favourite place and is a sofa and double chaise longue in one. It creates space for time out alone, for two, or as a family. Symmetry is often a must for aesthetes. In this case, it is served as a comfy, upholstered embrace. So when the next wave comes that needs to be escaped, take up a position on Vuelta Lounge Island and relax until the seas are calm again.
