AVL GLYDER. The new dynamic and versatile seating system by Atelier Van Lieshout.
The AVL Glyder is a new and innovative family of products developed with Joep van Lieshout, whose main characteristic is the extreme versatility.
"Glyder" is a seating system which can be placed in various environments, both public and private, whereas people meet to chat, work, learn or just relax.
The seating part is a dynamic element that can give rise to different settings and different atmospheres: in fact the backrest slides from left to right, basically “glides”.
A couple of poufs complete the range: they can be used individually or combined with others, extending the sitting space.
The formal principle is simple, every seating element is separated into its components; base, seat, back and armrest are solid volumes easily recognizable, relying on each other.
The chance to play with different colors in the lining of the individual elements, makes the system yet more flexible and ready to satisfy customer needs.
