The Hybrid Chair can quickly transform from a desk chair into a lounge chair and the other way around.
Lower the seat, and the angle will gradually slide in a backwards angle, including comfortable armrests. Slide it in the upwards position, and the Hybrid Chair is ideal to sit at a table. This chair combines two different ergonomic seating positions in one single chair.
The Hybrid Chair is ideal for people who do not want two separate chairs, or do not have room for two chairs, but still want the comfort of both a relaxing and active seating positions.
The frame of the chair is made of locally sourced solid oak wood.
Balanced frame for ultimate strength and comfort.
Comfortable armrest with seamless integration with the chair.
The Hybrid Chair will be available in two different options: the Comfort or Deluxe version. See below the differences:

The Hybrid Chair will be available in four color choices:
We recently decided to make the chair available in more colors. Below are all the options:
Fabric will be supplied by well know Danish manufacturer Kvadrat. The fabric is extremely durable and consists of 90% wool and 10% Nylon.
To complete the lounging experience of the chair, we have designed a matching foot-stool that can be converted into a side table. Simply slide out the top and flip it to switch from stool to side table and vice versa.
The past three years we have made many prototypes, proving the construction and ergonomics. That's why we are confident that we have designed the ultimate solution that is durable and comfortable.
The final production will be done by skilled woodworkers and upholstery specialists to assure the highest quality.

Campaign summary - use for publication
After years of design and development, Studio Lorier has designed the ultimate chair for any situation; The Hybrid Chair. This lounge chair can quickly transform into a desk chair and the other way around. For this project, Studio Lorier is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.
The Hybrid Chair is designed for people who do not want two separate chairs or simply do not have the space for it, but still want the comfort of a relaxing and active seating position. In the upright position, the Hybrid Chair is ideal to sit at a table or desk. The clever constructed frame lets the user lower the chair that sits in a slightly backwards angle. This position is ideal to relax in an ergonomic angle of the perfect lounge chair.
The frame of the Hybrid Chair is made of solid oak, and carefully handcrafted in the Netherlands. The fabric is supplied by Kvadrat and upholstered on a soft and comfortable seat. Studio Lorier offers two options of the Hybrid Chair; Comfort and Deluxe. The Comfort can be set manually in the top and bottom position, while the Deluxe option is driven by a pneumatic piston that can be set on any height. The user can even stay seated while lowering the Deluxe Hybrid Chair.
The design of the Hybrid Chair is finished, and now ready to be produced. To get production running, Studio Lorier needs to upscale their operation and invest in specialized tools and raw materials. This is the reason for the crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Supporters of the campaign get early access to the Hybrid Chair at a discounted price.
