or Call to Order

The George lounge chair designed by Gijs Papavoine for Montis is guar­an­teed to provide a comfort­able yet power­ful shape. Gijs believes in the art of omis­sion. George’s back and seat create a flowing line with its head­rest, which is remi­nis­cent of a radar antenna. Thanks to the horse­shoe-shaped seat and wide, rounded back, you’re guar­an­teed optimal support in any posi­tion. The light-footed base – avail­able as a prac­ti­cal swivel base or fixed – completes the chair’s under­stated, func­tional design. The delib­er­ate folds in the inte­rior cover make George a great candi­date for leather uphol­stery, though the wide range of fabrics offers plenty of alter­na­tives. And if you like to put your feet up, there’s an optional match­ing ottoman for extra comfort.


Gijs Papavoine


Gijs Papavoine studied at the institute of technology and Eindhoven Academy for Industrial Design, Product Design department. Gijs was employed as a Product Manager at Montis until 1990. In this capacity, he was jointly responsible for Montis’ design philosophy. In 1990, Gijs was promoted to the lead designer of Montis.

Since 2009 Gijs has worked as an independent designer for various national and international companies. “My roots are industrial design, not art. The designs are pure by their simplicity, yet versatile. Being uncomplicated is the power of my designs. Strong graphic elements, supplemented with flowing forms, characterize my work. A perfect mix of pure lines and functionality. The starting point is always to reduce the concept to a logical solution. "

I start with a general, rough idea, work and plan like a sculptor, leaving the essential features of the design. My designs are therefore uncomplicated, logical and practical.
