The Wave Lounge Chair is representative of Manulution's design direction, exploiting the abstract transformation of traditional craftsmanship into unique and authentic products of modern design. The Wave is designed as a seating piece of unified composition with seat and backrest made in solid and locally sourced Bosnian hardwoods. The stainless steel base enhances the product's light modernist appearance. The sculptural form of the Wave render it an ideal piece for lounges as well as homes.
The Wave Lounge Chair is a part of the Wave Collection, that also includes: Wave Dining Table

and Wave Cabinet
Manulution buys walnut and cherry logs from private orchards throughout Bosnia. These are trunks of old trees, which are cut when their productive life of fruit bearing is over and need to be replaced by new ones. They are bought directly from villagers, often in very small quantities, whenever it is offered. Other hardwoods (i.e. maple, oak, elm, and ash) are sourced from public forestry companies, the management of which has vastly improved in recent years. The forest certification process has started and several forests are FSC certified. There is also concrete evidence that forests are exploited sustainably. A recent forestry inventory (financed and supported by the World Bank) has shown that Bosnia's forest volume has increased significantly since the last inventory was conducted in 1960s. In fact, the study indicated that Bosnia, ostensibly, has more trees per capita than any country in Europe or Central Asia.
