The initial appeal of the lightly scaled Egoa Armchair (1988) is a clean, finely drawn profile that suggests Le Corbusier's "engineer's aesthetic." However, the chair's ultimate success lies in comfort-driven ergonomics. An ingeniously hinged seat and back move easily with the body, inviting users to adopt a dynamic sitting posture and allowing free range of movement. Every detail of the armchair has been carefully considered down to the glides that ensure stability and prevent the steel frame from damaging carpet or wood floor. Offering an alternative to typical armchairs, the Egoa balances ergonomic and functional demands with the warmth and durability of leather. Wood arms are lacquered to match the leather. The Egoa Armchair received the Melbourne Award for Innovative Design and is one of the most respected contract-quality chairs in Europe. Simple assembly required. Design Within Reach is proud to be the exclusive retailer of Stua products in the U.S. Made in Spain.
