U.N. North Delegates Lounge_01 UNphoto1.jpg Hella Jongerius custom-designed the wheeled UN Lounge Chair for the lounge renovation. It can be easily moved to accomodate informal meetings between delegates. The Polder Sofa, also positioned throughout the space, was designed by Jongerius for Vitra in 2005. The blue and green upholstery tones allude to the lushness of the Dutch landscape. All existing large-scale artwork had to remain in the space.
