4PM was about creating high comfort from a hard material. The design language of the chaise is a combination of curved and flat parts and has been designed to provide the best possible comfort.
From above, the profile of 4PM tapers towards the footrest, which enables the feet to fall comfortably on both sides, something that also simplifies getting in or out. The horizontal footrest can also be used as a temporary seating area or a table surface.
The headrest in leather is adjustable in height and it is elegantly balanced on top of the backrest and is held in place by an enclosed steel weight.
4PM is available in two types of wood, Douglas fir which is characterized by its warm tone and fine grain and cherry which is slightly darker.
”A chaise longue is not really a piece of furniture you will ever need, but if you can afford it, it can gild everyday life. And when I say can afford, I mean can afford in terms of space, because a chaise longue takes up a lot of space in relation to its function. That’s probably why you do not see them so often in our homes. But now that we’ve been through two tough years, it’s time to sit back for some well-deserved rest. That is why we are launching 4PM”
Chris Martin wanted to create a comfortable chaise longue that also has its place in a public environment, without unnecessary upholstery that may eventually need to be replaced. Chris, therefore, chose to add a single dressed element where it was needed most, a headrest.
In this case, Massproduction’s chair library has acted as a study in seating comfort, together with a number of prototypes developed at Massproduction’s design studio in Stockholm.
