Recliner (single) - Studio Stirling
The chair is inspired by nature with its elegantly curved lines, organic curves and a cocoon like feel that will gently embrace your body. The pattern detailing also nature inspired is reminiscent of the veins in leaves, tree branches intersecting, the patterns in dragonfly wings, cracked soil and natural textures. Form and function is working together - it is extremely comfortable with gentle movement giving a floating relaxing experience of panoramic views of the surroundings.

We design and make the chairs by hand - no CAD or computer assistance is used. We make several models - real full size proto types, sit in them, test them, make changes until the form and function is working together. Finding the hanging point was quite a challenge.
