Lounge Chair | 1968

loungechair_luigicolani_0.jpg

Lounge chair was designed by the futuristic German industrial designer Luigi Colani in 1968. The shell is wrapped in quality fabric and nested in a chrome-plated steel frame. The organic form offers maxiumu comfort ”for both the young and the young at heart who like a dash of extravagance” (original text from ’68). ”The earth is round, all the heavenly bodies are round; they all move on round or elliptical orbits. This same image of circular globe-shaped mini worlds orbiting around each other follows us right down to the microcosmos. We are even aroused by round forms in species propagation related eroticism. Why should I join the straying mass who want to make everything angular?”
