The Contura chaise, made in Norway, is engineered to deliver maximum comfort, and support to the body, while making a stunning visual statement. Contura is a 'zero-gravity' chair, meaning that, when fully reclined, your body weight is evenly distributed
The Contura with the Split patent has been in the international furniture market since 1994 and was rewarded the Norwegian “Classic award” in 2018. The aim of the Contura mechanism is to bring the human body from sitting to lying position with legs above the heart, in one “seamless” movement. Their idea for this advanced mechanism goes back to a project with SAS in the early 1990s to improve the comfort of overseas flights. This gave birth to the Contura for the international recline chair market.
