"I think comfort is first and foremost about creating a sense of wellbeing," says Espen Voll of Norwegian design duo Anderssen & Voll. "We very much had the modern home in mind when designing the chair, making a comfortable seat that you could spend the whole evening in," adds Torbjørn Anderssen.
Introduced as the first grand lounge chair by Muuto, the Doze Lounge Chair by Norwegian design duo Anderssen & Voll arose from a desire to create a design with a modern expression, referencing the ideas of Scandinavian design with hints of 1970’s design for a contemporary perspective on the archetypical lounge chair.
On their ideas for Doze, the designers note: "Scandinavia has a long tradition of extensively comfortable lounge chairs; at the heart of our design heritage lies the versatile concept of comfort. As such, the idea of creating a grand lounge chair came very natural to us," and add: "It has a contemporary expression through the vibrant lines and folds of its large back and armrests, giving personality to the design alongside added comfort and shelter for its user."
