Description

Details

Magnus Long is a British industrial designer based in London working within furniture, product and lighting design. His award-winning Cross Leg Lounge Chair was designed in 2015 and made exclusively for The Conran Shop.

Awarded for Excellence in Design by Design Guild Mark 2015 – recognising excellence and innovation in British furniture design – the idea for this chair came about from wrapping Post-it notes around and 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. The addition of multi-density foams build the fluid form and supreme ergonomics of the Cross Leg Lounge Chair. A high strength tubular steel frame supports the shell and the back legs cross over, giving the chair both its name and a unique detail.

Crafted in Italy, the shell is exquisitely 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 to showcase its striking outline and make it a true statement piece for any room or work space.
