Baron was created by the designer duo SchoeneHeileWelt Designstudio (Christian Ohlendorf and Robin Hapelt). In developing the chair, their aim was to come up with a light, robust, eco-friendly but still attractive lounge furniture piece. They succeeded: the outcome, Baron”, is an indoor and outdoor armchair made of steel, polypropylene and – air! In addition to the properties above, Baron” is also easy to care for, can be stacked compactly, is simple to transport and can be configured for a range of personalized designs.

Air cushion bags made of polypropylene were appropriated for seat surface. These extremely resilient air cushions are usually used to secure loads on trucks or ships by filling out empty space. The seat height and comfort of the lounge armchair can be adjusted by controlling the air pressure in the cushion. The seat height varies from 28 to 45 cm, and all levels of comfort from soft via medium hard to firm cushioning are possible. A commercial double-stroke air pump is ideal for filling with air. The armchair takes up minimal space for storage and transport and can be quickly set up and put away. It thus offers the comfort of a typical lounge furniture piece while minimizing time and effort when it needs to be moved. Because the air cushion bags are highly resilient and resistant to moisture, Baron” can also be used outdoors.
