BASS is a square minimalistic armchair and sofa that can be used for almost any interior design project, whether in a contemporary or traditional setting, for a public space or an executive office, BASS offers classic styling but with its own identity and characteristic.
The BASS design consists of a small, medium and large lounge seating – simple as that. All of them being extremely compact in their design and therefore very efficient when used in interior projects where space is at a premium. Even though its design is minimalistic and free of any unnecessary details BASS has its own distinct design, which is both dynamic and sleek with clean lines. The seating angle –giving BASS the comfortable feeling of a deep lounge chair – is applied by tilting the chair whereby the unique and distinct profile originates. BASS rests on the simple yet elegant tubu ar base and spans the depth of the emphasizes the piece which further emphasizes the clean, tailored angular lines of this simple yet sophisticated lounge collection.
Nienkämper extends the BASS Lounge Series by creating a high back version featuring high back and sides, and ultra comfortable seating that offers instant privacy within an open space. This design is exceptional in hotel lobbies, corporate lounges, libraries, or any environment where you need more privacy than a typical lounge grouping offers.
