Ogle Noor releases its Land Rover- inspired Recliner L110 chair this month, as part of the manufacturer’s 50th anniversary celebrations. The chair aims to ‘combine the themes of automotive and product design, with an unmistakably British aesthetic’, says Ogle Noor design director Herman Tandberg. With a leather seat and an anodised, brushed satin, aluminium frame and legs, the chair features: touch-sensitive storage space, a powered reclining mechanism, programmable massage and heating units and an ‘onboard’ CD player. Speakers in the seat back and armrests provide surround sound. Additional options include a cooler unit for refreshments, wire-free connection and Internet access, and a DVD player with retractable flat-screen monitors. A limited edition of 110 will be produced and the chair will be priced from £3400.
