One of only twenty in existence, the Karuselli Lounge Chair in all-black prestige leather was designed by Yrjö Kukkapuro and is Sir Terence’s favourite chair.
A result of numerous experiments, the chair was designed in 1964 after Kukkapuro paid close attention to how snow moulds to the contouring of the human body. Its undulating form is balanced atop a sturdy fibreglass shell with generous padding. All-enveloping, the Karuselli moves with you thanks to its swivel and rock capabilities.
Yrjö Kukkapuro is a central figure of Finnish functionalism who, in his creations, prioritised sense and function above all. This characteristic is exemplified by the Karuselli Lounge Chair and Ottoman, which form an equally ergonomic and artful addition to timeless interior décors.
“It’s the most comfortable chair in the world… I lie back in it with a glass of whisky and a cigar and immediately feel that life is worth living.” - Sir Terence Conran.
