'When I saw the newly upholstered Orange Slice in the living room of a friend, the warm memories of my childhood suddenly came up. Friends of my parents used to have one. I couldn’t take my eyes off this armchair, even back then. I enjoyed sitting in the armchair.
After this renewed acquaintance it wasn’t long before I bought mine in a store in Rotterdam. I deliberately chose a striking colour. Yellow is inviting and warm at the same time, and gives you a happy feeling. Exactly what the model itself does to me. In the Orange Slice you can sit upright, bended, slanted or even slumped .... while you still look elegant. Amazing, right? For me it is absolutely the perfect armchair. I enjoy it every day!'
