The Cover lounge chair, designed by Thomas Bentzen for Muuto, is a contemporary interpretation of a classic wooden armchair. The Cover lounge chair comprises a light, rounded veneer shell and strong wooden legs that give it an organic, grounded appearance. Thanks to the relaxed design, the Cover lounge chair will find its place at living rooms, lounge areas, hotels, and restaurants alike.
Designer Thomas Bentzen wanted to create a comfortable wooden armchair with a strong personality, and it took him three years to develop a perfect version of the chair. The Cover chair was named after the thin, moulded veneer covers which work both as armrests and structural elements of the chair.
In 2020 Muuto changed the chairs’ finish to a more environmentally-friendly, water-based lacquer.
