Dezeen Showroom: French designer Jean-Marie Massaud has expanded on his Aston chair design for Arper, with new club chair variations designed to enclose the sitter in luxurious comfort.

The Aston Club chair and Aston Club Low Back chair are based on the shape of the 2006 original but with features more suited to the lounge than the boardroom.

Described by Arper as offering "a timeless form designed for superlative comfort", the Aston Club chair has a deep inclined seat and a wraparound headrest to offer privacy and respite from the world, along with an optional footrest.

The newest variation, the Aston Club Low Back, offers a similar feeling of generous comfort but in a more minimal form.

With no headrest, the Aston Club Low Back works well on its own or grouped in multiples for both conversation or relaxation.

Both Aston Club chairs come in a wide range of upholstery options, with four-star bases in either polished or painted aluminium, finished in no-VOC paint.

Their internal parts are made from post-industrial recycled plastic, and the chairs are made with no glue to allow for easy disassembly and recycling or upcycling.
