Aptly named, TGM’s HIPPO chair really likes to throw its weight around. Bigger is definitely better when you’re a HIPPO, which is the acronym for High Intensity Personal Puffy Object, and which is, arguably, a self-contained single-human lounge. Boasting thick leather support, combined with an ultra-plush upholstery job, don’t be surprised if you think about moving in permanently.
Joking aside, HIPPO is a rare creature, and its construction is one of the most complicated in our line. For one thing, parts of the HIPPO from the same auction as the first Ping Pong table we produced. White oak, and the wooden parts all have to be turned precisely, just so, painstaking work. Likewise, the aluminum parts were scavenged from old shelving, so they’re also completely unique, and updated with powder-coating.
Each chair will become modular as additional pieces are added on to complete a set of either a loveseat or sofa.
