Wavelength® is designed to provide engaging seating for airports, public lobbies, retail outlets, and other public spaces. With its gently curving forms, Wavelength® provides subtle movement and a rapport between the user and his or her environment.
"The Wavelength® Collection is designed with a sensual language that heightens comfort, flexibility, and diversity," says Rashid. "I try to develop furniture as objects that bring enjoyment, not encumbrances that simplify tasks, and increase our level of and engagement of beauty. I have tried to accomplish this with Wavelength, whose waves continue metaphorically adinfinitum.”
"We are extremely excited to have this new collection by Karim Rashid," says Klaus Nienkämper, President of Nienkämper. "Wavelength® continues Nienkämper's commitment to bringing the finest design to the workplace and public realm."
The Wavelength® seating collection is available fully upholstered in leather, vinyl or fabric. The cast aluminum base is available in a brushed or polished finish. The lounge chair and two- and three-seat sofas are available with and without arms with or without table attached. The Wavelength® Collection also includes benches and occasional tables.
