Comfortable, versatile, elegant, the Ginger Ale armchair is just at home in the workspace, as a workstation or meeting room chair, as it is in the domestic setting, in the study or dining room. To cater for all needs, Roberto Lazzeroni has produced four variants: with four-leg base, with four-spoke base, with five-spoke base and castors (fixed or adjustable height) and with column base (fixed or swivel). The external shell is made from moulded thermoplastic composite polymer and available in the colours “anthracite” and “cement”. The padding is in polyurethane foam and the inside surface of the seat is upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather. There are two variants of the Ginger Ale base: with “anthracite” or “cement” lacquered finishes that match the shell. The 4-leg model has a metal base formed of four conical feet, available with plastic caps or adjustable plastic caps with felt pad. The 4-spoke base is in steel with black plastic adjustable caps equipped with felt pads. The 5-spoke base with castors is made of steel and available in both the 360° swivel version with fixed height and the version with gas spring to adjust the seat height. The wheel support is in black plastic for the lacquered versions or chromium-plated in the chromium-plated version. The Ginger armchair with column base has a steel base with black plastic caps. It comes in the fixed and swivel versions. The latter has a shock absorbing device and automatic return to the starting position.
