Stokke Tok Lounge Chair Recliner


In the US, Stokke is known mostly for its children's line. In the rest of the world, the venerable Norwegian company is known for making "Life worth sitting." This means that their unique styles come with ergonomic benefits, so chairs that look good also feel good. Take the Tok. Product of Stokke's first collaboration with Japanese designer Toshiyuki Kita, the Tok blends Stokke’s knack for smart functionality with Kita’s pared down design aesthetic, and a bit of nostalgic hat-tipping to the late great Charles Eames.

Shown above in Olive wood and white leather, the Tok recalls Eames’ famous rosewood lounge chair and gives it a modern twist. If you like the looks you can buy it online at a number of retailers, but if you want to sit in it before you buy, you better be outside the United States. The Tok is not available through US brick and mortar stores.
