or Call to Order

The Wink Lounge is ergonom­i­cally correct and exquis­itely versa­tile. Designed in 1980, Wink clev­erly unfolds from a lounge chair into a chaise-longue. The back, and head-rest can be adjusted by means of the handles on the side. A pop look brings the design to life as it can be person­al­ized in either leather, or in an ample array of fabrics and colors, with more added regu­larly. Designer Toshiyuki Kita explains, sitting on Wink means sitting on the floor and, when you are seated there, accord­ing to orien­tal tradi­tion, your spirit rises.”
