Piped Chaise Longue was created as a “guest star” at The Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition 2016. The theme of the exhibition was “Pitch Black – Shadows & Transparency”.
Piped Chaise Longue is inspired by the striped shadow formations that appear when the sun shines on the strong wires that sustain suspension bridges.
In addition the construction of chaise longue illudes an optical mirroring of the two bearing frames that float symmetrical about the horizontal axis.
Length 210cm x depth 75cm x height 40,5cm (70,5cm at the ends).
The two load-bearing frames are 20mm bent pipe and then powder coated in matte black along with the vertical metal wires (Ø 5mm). The sitting/lying surface consists of bent plywood padded with a thin layer of foam and finally covered with black leather.
