The Metro­pol­i­tan High-Back lounge, designed by Jeffrey Bernett for B&B Italia, epit­o­mizes elegance and sophis­ti­ca­tion. Its strik­ing design, char­ac­ter­ized by gentle curves and engag­ing cants, makes it an impres­sive state­ment piece from any angle. This lounge chair is part of the Metro­pol­i­tan range, which offers a variety of back heights, includ­ing low, mid, and high backs, as well as a wing­back lounge chair with a neck rest and an optional ottoman.

The High-Back version of the Metro­pol­i­tan lounge features an inter­nal compo­si­tion of premium-quality steel, expertly crafted to provide maximum dura­bil­ity and support. The Bayfit cold-shaped polyurethane foam with poly­ester padding ensures supreme comfort, making it the perfect spot for relax­ation after a long day. The inno­v­a­tive roll-shaped neck cushion on the tall back version is adjustable by using magnets, ensur­ing you can find the perfect posi­tion for your comfort.

The Metro­pol­i­tan Lounge’s base is composed of bright, brushed die-cast and extruded aluminum, adding to its luxu­ri­ous appeal. The spokes culmi­nate in plastic glides, ensur­ing the chair remains firmly in place while protect­ing your floors. Whether you choose the swivel colum­nar support or the simple flat disc base, the Metro­pol­i­tan High-Back lounge will make a bold and elegant state­ment in any space.
