The S88 is one of the most striking designs from Maarten Van Severen’s oeuvre. It is constructed out of three different materials: steel, leather and canvas. The steel harness is barely visible. A leather sheet, rectangular like a tabletop, perfectly bent around the steel, is sturdy but always retains a certain flexibility. A thick canvas cushion provides a comfortable seat height. The S88 chair of Maarten Van Severen is like a blanket that wraps around you in harsh circumstances.
