Exclusively available at The Conran Shop, the award-winning Cross Leg Lounge Chair and Ottoman duo 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 the Cross Leg collection came about from wrapping Post-it notes into 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 duo. A high strength tubular steel black frame supports the two pieces, while the back legs cross over, giving the design both its name and a unique detail.
Crafted in Italy, the shell of the Cross Leg Lounge Chair and Ottoman can be exquisitely upholstered in the diverse range of fabrics that make up The Conran Shop’s exclusive upholstery edit: leather, linen, a rich wool blend cotton, linen textured weave, velvet and cotton textured weave, in an exclusive palette of specially selected colours.
Finished with distinctive, oversized criss-cross stitching on the visible seams to showcase their striking outlines, the duo would make a true statement piece for any room or work space.
