Funda Lounge by Viccarbe
The commitment to maximum sustainability and comfort shapes Funda, a range of seating conceived by the outstanding designer Stefan Diez under the umbrella of creating an innovative and light chair. Funda means “cover” in Spanish.
This new collection is presented as a construction made up of two differentiated pieces that, thanks to its shape, simulate the gesture of two hands which embrace the user. The development of Funda has been based on combining a metal structure designed to last over time, and an upholstered seat that can be replaced after years of use or severe wear and tear.
Funda represents the balance between precision and the human-centred approach of Stefan Diez. His constant search for both industrial innovation and visual appeal has achieved in this collection a curved and friendly shape, combined with an upholstery known for its wrinkles.
In this way, Funda manages to evoke the maximum expression of comfort and makes available the different pieces of the range to all types of environments: restoration projects, homes, intermediate spaces and office meeting places, etc.
Available in White or Black powdercoat frame and a variety of fabric or leather.

About the designer
Stefan Diez introduction to furniture design started in 1991 when he started an apprenticeship as a cabinet maker. Diez went on to study at Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart in 1996 where he attained a Diploma in Industrial Design. He founded his studio in 2003 and since then has worked in various fields of design ranging from furniture and tableware to industrial design, as well as exhibition design.
Some of his products have received international design awards, among others the “Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland”, the “IF Gold award” and the “red dot best of the best award”.
From 2007 to 2014 he was Professor for Industrial Design at the HFG Karlsruhe. Since 2018 Stefan Diez is Professor for Industrial Design at the Universität für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna
Diez works intensively with materials, technology and is passionate in his quest to fathom out their limitations. Together with his office they develop products that are precise, yet simple and above all are meant to meet human needs. Stefan Diez belongs to the first generation of designers who were trained in a craft and, during their studies, also started to experiment with digital tools and are therefore at home in both worlds. His work results from an approach that uses both analogue and digital methods an accumulates experiences that are applied in development and production processes.
