Lounge Chair by Nigel Coates

Nigel Coates Illustrates The Lehnstuhl Lounge Chair

Nigel Coates, the architect of the displayed design Nigel Coates's Lehnstuhl Lounge chair points out, This is the first lounge chair produced in the Thonet bentwood language. It arose as a commission for the newly formed Wiener GTV Design in the current phase of the brand's programme of innovation. Other commissioned designers include Front and Martino Gamper. The chair is a junction of three unusually long individual bentwood elements that form the back, the arms and front legs, and a structural undercarriage. They are assembled in such a way as to give dynamic context to one another. The broad back and deep seat generate a simulacrum of the body in a relaxed sitting attitude..
