OMO Modern Chair and Ottoman
Chair and Ottoman
The inspiration was to provide memory foam comfort in furniture with a unique manufacturing process ending in overlaying the upper surface of the furniture with a layer of memory foam that provides comfort and benefits similar to a memory foam mattress.The OMO Modern Chair & Ottoman brings true memory foam comfort to modern design.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The restful, modern, and fresh OMO Modern Chair & Ottoman is the result of a unique, patent pending manufacturing method combined with a memory foam based, innovative patent pending design to bring true comfort and design together. Memory foam furniture that is sure to be a conversation starter.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
As the users body shape molds to the memory foam extraordinary comfort and relaxation results. Sit and enjoy!
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in the summer of 2013 and the first production date was April 2nd, 2014.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Starting with a new patent pending manufacturing method, our curved comfort design is achieved by using foam molds to form a solid core of rigid foam. Instead of a heavy wood/steel framed interior with added layers of upholstery used in conventional furniture manufacturing, our method generates curves and unparalleled comfort from the complete polyurethane foam structure. The inner core of rigid foam is easily molded into a curved shape that would be difficult to produce with linear pieces of wood or metal. Molding foam around the inner core is simpler and less costly than making conventional framed upholstered furniture.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The chair and ottoman are upholstered in 2 different fabrics. The orange fabric is Twill /100% polyester and the grey fabric is a Corn Lattice pattern / 88% polyester & 12" Spandex. Both fabrics lend to the conforming nature of the memory foam. The OMO Modern Chair measures 889mm in height and 914mm wide. The seat to floor measurement is a comfortable 432mm. The OMO Modern Ottoman measures 482mm in height and a comfortable 686mm wide.

We recently completed a clinical sleep study comparing two memory foam mattresses to a traditional coil spring mattress. The objective of the study was to assess objective (EEG) and subjective sleep quality and comfort measures. The increases in time sleeping, sleep latency, sleep efficiency, and decrease in sleep arousal, while using memory foam confirmed that it is an optimal pressure relieving material. We wanted to bring the comfort and benefits similar to a memory foam mattress to furniture.
As a memory foam mattress manufacturer, bringing the innovative furniture designs to life was our greatest challenge. The production issues for working with a new product led us to develop a patent pending manufacturing method. Our curved comfort design is achieved by using an outer foam mold in the shape of the chair or ottoman, and an inner foam mold to form a core of rigid foam. Molding foam around the inner core is simpler and less costly than making conventional framed upholstered furniture, and results in more comfortable furniture.
