GRAN KOBI Collection

Patrick Norguet, 2016

Patrick Norguet designed GRAN KOBI, a very sophisticated and comfortable lounge collection. The sinuous yet clean geometry represents the natural evolution of the collection of KOBI chairs. Gran Kobi is a generously-sized low armchair, a very versatile seat.
In the “Essentiel” version, the shell is without the woven welded steel wires and becomes a structural, enveloping element. Ideal in domestic livings and waiting rooms, Gran Kobi and Gran Kobi Essentiel are the perfect match for the pouf of the collection, inducing an attitude of comfort and relaxation.
