Exclusively available at The Conran Shop, the award-winning Cross Leg Dining Chair was designed in 2015 by Magnus Long, a British industrial designer based in London working within furniture, product and lighting design.
Awarded Design Guild Mark's inaugural ‘Jonathan Hindle Award for Design Excellence’ in 2015 – recognising excellence and innovation in British furniture design – the idea for this chair came about from wrapping Post-it notes around cones to create a supple but stable shell for the seat.
The form of the cone developed into a bean-like shape to express a warm and inviting place to sit with the addition of multi-density foam building the fluid form and supreme ergonomics of the chair. A high strength tubular steel black frame supports the shell, while the back legs cross over, giving the chair both its name and a unique detail.
Crafted in Italy, the shell of the Cross Leg Dining Chair can be exquisitely upholstered in the diverse range of fabrics that make up The Conran Shop’s exclusive upholstery edit: linen, a rich wool blend cotton, linen textured weave and cotton textured weave, in an exclusive palette of specially selected colours.
Finished with distinctive, oversized criss-cross stitching on the visible seams of the seat to showcase its striking outline, the chair it a true statement piece for any room or work space.
