There are various opinions about the design of seating furniture. Some love a highly positioned model with an elegant frame, others prefer a low covered seating element, where you barely see the frame. In order to extend the success of the multifunctional Wing, launched during the autumn of 2015, towards a larger public, JORI came up with a variant of the original open base-model: the WING ‘DIVAN BASE’.
The WING ‘DIVAN BASE’ is oriented towards lovers of functional, optically low seating models, of which the seating or lying options can be adjusted according to the needs of the moment. This new version maintains the ultra transformable characteristics of its older brother, but is optically 10 cm lower with a seat that nearly caresses the floor. The seating height of both WING -models remains however identical.
In its default position the Wing ‘div an base ’ is, just like the Wing ‘ope n base ’, set up as a cosy ‘corner sofa’, of which you can customize the seating comfort. But you can also go for the ‘double chaise longue’ position to watch television
or enjoy a nice chill. On the other hand, in no time, you can transform the Wing into a ‘lounge’ position’ to lie down at full length. In ‘island’ position’ you change it into a living environment on itself, to lay down, to read a book or to chill
out all by yourself or in company of friends or family.
Just like the entire JORI collection the new WING ’DIVAN BASE’ is manufactured with craftsmanship in the JORI production unit in Belgium and is available in a wide range of qualitative leather and fabric colours, which can be combined together. Both the leather as well as the fabric version are available with ornamental stitch or piping.
Indicative price: ± € 10.000 in basic leather / € 8.800 in basic fabric. The ‘JORI configurator’ allows you to compose the WING ‘DIVAN BASE’, by means of a wide range of options, completely according to your wishes.
