Esse Lounge Chair

designed by Philippe Tabet

made by Pianca



grd A fabric


Adding to and completing the series of seating from the Esse family – created based on the same inspirational blueprint – we now have the Esse Lounge, too: an armchair with an even softer and more enveloping backrest. The moulded seat – like the base – can be upholstered in fabric, leather or imitation leather, choosing any option from the Pianca range. The version on legs, on the other hand, can be made from solid black walnut or ash. The ample, inviting shape of the seat gives the armchair a welcoming, protective feel. Compared to its “sisters”, Esse Lounge is more generous in its proportions, denoting a casual nature more geared towards offering a relaxing, restful break.

Driven by the desire to gain a deeper understanding of the history of furniture, Philippe Tabet moved to Milan in 2011, starting his professional career in the furniture industry. In 2014 he decided to set up his own studio, making the focus of his work the production process, materials and their specific features: the shapes derived from them become a continuum of the material from which they are crafted.
