Mark Barrell, Design Director at Boss Design
The design headquarters is situated in the West Midlands of the United Kingdom and localised for the US market in High Point, North Carolina. Amelia reimagines the classic wing back chair in a slimline form with a sense of timeless elegance and refined ergonomics.
Standing top of the podium in its category at NeoCon, the Amelia Lounge Collection exemplifies the best of British design and US manufacturing. The collection takes its name from the aviator Amelia Earhart, the first female aviator to fly to America from the UK solo – a nod to Boss Design’s transatlantic links.
Light and contoured, Amelia features a continuous, ribbon-like line along its outer edge which neatly conceals its main seam for a smooth and sophisticated aesthetic. Gracefully alighting in any setting, the design is a modern piece that blurs the boundaries between workspace and hospitality.
COMFORTABLE, REFINED & SUSTAINABLE
Soft and comfortable despite its svelte form, the Amelia experience is like sitting on air. A plush version comes with more luxurious upholstery in the back section, with looser, ruffled fabric lending an added aura of comfort.
The advanced injection moulding process used to manufacture Amelia reduces the amount of polymer required for each chair, lightening the product’s carbon footprint whilst still delivering seating that is beautiful and durable. Made to last, and designed to be easily reupholstered, its extended lifecycle helps make it a sustainable choice.
