'I looked at the world of automotive design for inspiration. Especially the advances being made in trying to create hybrid sports cars - exciting styling combined with clever technology. Like those concept cars, Harvard is an example of design, quality and functionality combining to create a uniquely modern product,' says designer René Hougaard.
Sometimes, when the pressure of everyday living gets to be just a bit too much, all you really want is a safe corner in your modern world. A private space for some serious 'me time'. No strings attached.
The Premium edition - available in electric and battery-operated versions - utilises an innovative space-saving mechanism that keeps the shape lean and sleek. Separate controls for the back and fully extending leg rests are built into the arm, along with a USB port to keep your devices charged.
The Essential edition also has a reclining back but is manually-operated, and a seperated footstool makes it easy to stretch out completely. Both editions include a manual adjustable headrest and are available in BoConcept's range of over 100 fabrics and leathers.
As metropolitans we're used to all the different noises of the city, we often work long hours and we run from one meeting to another. We thrive on it, and we wouldn't want it any other way. But living at this speed also requires personal sanctuaries of complete silence. The new Harward relicliner is such a sanctuary. When you slip down into this modern armchair it almost feels like the ears and armrests protect you. Like they fold around you so that you can relax and focus on being you. No doubt, the Harvard recliner is an armchair suited for the 21st century.
