Gabriella Asztalos designed the Hug Chair influenced by a combination of her studies in traditional design & ballet. Understanding flexibility and expression of movement with forms has enabled the designer to build on the concept of a hug and turn it into a practical and sexy lounger for a couple of people. Basically, this is way more than a traditional seating. This designer lounger embodies the wrapping of arms in a hug, creating a circular continuous form which enables a couple to be facing each other, promoting visual contact, communication & support in an intimate way. As a hug promotes these ideas, so does the Hug.
