The Paimio lounge chair was the climax of three years of
experimentation to create a chair that would feel comfortable to sit
in over long periods and help ease patients’ breathing. The scrolllike
seat was molded from a single piece of birch plywood, while
its flexing structure made the wood feel ‘soft’ and welcoming.
