MEDIA ROOM FURNITURE - BESPOKE VENICE WITH MASSAGE
VENICE is one of our most successful models – a shape refined to the extreme, yet still retaining a surprising amount of possibilities. That is why it was an interesting task to create a model out of it not only fit for a movie room, but which can stand the extra challenges posed by pets or visiting kids who come over to have some fun, without having to banish any comfort or premium experience.
We simply exchanged the leather or plush usually used for movie armchairs to a warmer, yet resistant Alcantara® fabric pleasant to the touch. Alcantara® is used extensively by the automotive industry as the upholstery for seats in cars and interior carpeting of vehicles. It is also often used on luxury yachts and aircraft for similar purposes. Women’s dresses and bags are made of it also and, naturally, it is also used as the upholstery for quality furniture. Its diverse use is not only due to its attractiveness, but also its durability and resistance to mechanical use, weather and a marine atmosphere and also its breathability and colour retention. Alcantara is lighter and more flexible than leather of the same thickness and its breathability is also better, remaining comfortable throughout an exciting film.
In order to increase comfort, a pneumatic massage system has been built in providing not only a relaxing back massage, but also a lumbar support function. Its silent operation allows for watching a quiet film, or listening to music, while relaxing tired muscles after a long day.
For the sake of a uniform appearance, we used our decorative and high-quality control buttons here for the first time, which allow comfortable control over all functions of the furniture, but are discretely hidden on the side of the upholstered armrests. The control buttons for the seats are pleasant to the touch and easily found even in a dark room, while, in the case of the massage function, a discrete LED provides feedback on its operation.
The furniture comes equipped not only with the usual cup holders and storage compartments, but a supplementary little platform can also be ordered to go with our wooden cup holders. This decorative and simple solution allows us to place all objects on a stable surface that are part of the home entertainment centre and it also allows us to store any food and drinks that we wish to have during the film in an easily accessible manner, without having to fear for knocking anything down.
There is nothing left to do, just set the footrest in vertical position, tilt the backrest and enjoy a relaxing rest.
