Metro is the archetypal cuboid armchair. Its proportions are perfect: the frame has the exact thickness required to complete the piece’s coherent geometry. The square feet are a logical consequence of the design. The seat and backrest soften the seriousness of the external shape, an impression which is amplified in the alternative soft upholstered model.
Metro’s appearance can be significantly altered simply by adapting the choice of feet – wood or chrome variants are available – or material used in the covering, depending on whether it is destined for an office or home context. A clear, straightforward piece of furniture such as Metro demands uncompromising precision. Wittmann’s perfect stitching and upholstery is the main reason why Metro is in a league of its own when it comes to cuboid armchairs.
