To make it possible to tailor both looks and comfort, there is a choice between 2 leg heights (10 cm or 13 cm), giving a seat height of either 41 cm or 44 cm, and a choice of 2 heights for the back cushions (high version 51 cm; low version 40 cm).
Enki is the first seating Evangelos Vasileiou has designed for Ligne Roset. Intended to respond to multiple requirements, its pure, elegant lines lend themselves to both stand-alone seating (settees, armchair, footstool) and corner compositions, with a range of 18 items in total.
Settees and armchair: armrest and backrest in
3-layer particleboard and MDF. Seat:
mechanically-soldered steel and rods of multiply.
Footstool: seat in 3-lawer particleboard and
panels of multi-ply.
Panels clad in polyether foam and high
resilience polyurethane Bultex foam. The entire
structure is clad in 200 g/m² polyester quilting.

settees and armchairs and corner compositions,
