Lehnstuhl Lounge chair by Nigel Coates

Home > Winners > #52394


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Lehnstuhl

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lounge chair

INSPIRATION:
All earlier pieces of bentwood furniture in the Thonet tradition, yet pushing their techniques to the limits of possible production. For example the chair consists of three exceptionally long elements that required great skill on the part of the makers to realise. The way these three curved elements join emphasises a choreographic sense of movement and a body-like composition.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is the first static elongated lounge chair produced in the Thonet bentwood language. It was commissioned by the newly innovative Wiener GTV Design (or Gebrueder Thonet Vienna)

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Though not strictly interactive, this piece is part of a collection that includes the Bodystuhl and Hocker that together make a fluid and relaxed furnishing environment.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The piece was first presented by Wiener GTV Design at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2014 amongst company classics and innovative pieces by other designers. The Lehnstuhl soon became a motif for the new values of the company.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Traditional steam bent beech bentwood frame with seat and back in Viennese cane or upholstered.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 74cm Depth 88cm Height 85cm

TAGS:
flowing, fluid, comfort, body, innovative, interlocking, relaxed, oversized, stylish, iconic

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I began by making numerous models in wire; each of them explores how several curved elements can compliment each other visually, maintain their independence while coming together to make structural sense. The piece had to be abundant and essential at the same time.

CHALLENGE:
To capture a new outline using traditional techniques within production limits. My own work is often about flow, and I wanted to match this sensibility with the bentwood language.
