Kavai Chair by Hallgeir Homstvedt for LK Hjelle
Updated: Jan 14, 2020
Kavai is a lounge chair that is big on comfort but not in size.
Early in the design process Hallgeir Homstvedt focused on the importance of a good armrest. He found that in order to truly relax in a seated situating, what to do with your hands is just as important as the softness of the seat. The angle of the armrest on KAVAI gradually drops off towards the back, providing support for your arms while making room from the elbows to slip down to a comfortable height.
With its small size Kavai is suitable for any space; alone in the reading nook, as a pair in the living room or in groups of many in a lobby. Kavai has a distinct profile, with a slender body and a generous armrest. The armrest on Kavai envelops your body, much like a coat hugs your neck on a cold winter day.
