Magnus Long is a British industrial designer based in London, working within furniture, product and lighting design. A celebrated name in British design, Long was awarded Design Guild Mark's inaugural ‘Jonathan Hindle Award for Design Excellence’ in 2015 for his Cross Leg Lounge Chair, which he designed exclusively for The Conran Shop.
A new addition to the Cross Leg collection, and an exclusive to The Conran Shop, is the Cross Leg Dining Chair. The idea for this design came from wrapping Post-it notes around and into cones to create a supple but stable shell for the seat.
Made in Italy, the shell is impeccably upholstered in supple, superior grade tan leather by artisan masters in leatherwork. Distinctive, oversized criss-cross stitching has been used on the visible seams of the seat shell to showcase its striking outline.
Also available in a variety of leather colours and fabrics.
