The Plus+ easy chair is available with two backrest heights and wooden or upholstered armrests. The removable upholstery and moisture barrier make the chair easy to service and the thermo-elastic foam cushion adds comfort.

The details of the Plus+ furniture have been designed for the demands set by old age and impaired mobility. The chairs are easy to sit down in and no help is needed to get up from them.

Jukka Setälä based his Plus+ series design on the design-for-all principle. The furniture is very comfortable and safe to use, but also stylish and well-proportioned. Moreover, it meets all special requirements and has passed stringent tests. Physical frailty does not prevent people from appreciating beauty.

Plus+ is a series of eight variable pieces of furniture, including a wooden chair with armrests, an easy chair with a low or high backrest, sofas seating two or three, a rocking chair, two sofa tables and a dining table. Round wooden legs and elegance create the harmonious look that encompasses the Pinta+ series.
