Kalm is Artifort’s large, new cosy armchair by our French designer Patrick Norguet. It is a sanctuary in its own right, a place to unwind and get comfortable. With Kalm, Patrick Norguet has created an iconic, luxurious and comfortable high-back armchair for your living room or study.
‘To me, Kalm is a statement’, Norguet says. ‘The clean and expressive lines set it apart from other big armchairs. This chair brings to mind a lifestyle that is vital and vibrant. The cushion literally forms the basis for the design archetype. I covered it with a large protective shell that seems to both embrace and envelop it. The design also explores the possibilities of different base executions, such as a pedestal base and wooden legs.’
Kalm is not only a beautiful chair that will earn a special place for itself in your home. According to Norguet, it is also ‘an expressive armchair that is suitable in any project environment. Several Kalm armchairs grouped together will definitely define a hotel lobby or meeting room and create a distinguished and iconic image.’
Kalm is a upholstered armchair. Its semi-circular shell of the backrest and arms is attached to the underside of the seat cushion. The internal tubular frame of the Kalm is lined with foam. The chair has a metal swivel cross base in stainless steel or powder coated. In addition, a wooden 4-legged base in oil finish is available.
The Kalm armchair can be combined with matching Ottoman, which has an upholstered cushion in the same shape as the cushion in the chair.
