MORTON is a statement – a deft blend of elegant upholstered chair and armchair that holds its own both at a dining table or in a boardroom. One striking feature of this lightweight item of furniture is the precisely executed two-part upholstery of the backrest, which quietly envelops the body. The subtle suspension mechanism in the backrest pleasantly accentuates the movements of the person sitting in the piece. Typically for a Wittmann, the seat comprises a pocket-spring core to ensure exceptional seating comfort. Flexible in terms of colours and coverings, the surface complements the individual character of the design. Herkner, who loves to play with different materials, also enjoys placing the focus on subtle details such as the crossmember in the base of the seat. Wittmann Möbelwerkstätten’s know-how enables the designer to come up with highly intuitive shapes and formulate precise seam patterns. In the case of MORTON, material, finish and the combination of leather and fabric are decisive. And this is where Wittmann’s exceptional handcraftsmanship comes into its own.
