This award-winning Cross Leg Lounge Chair was designed in 2015 by Magnus Long, a British industrial designer based in London working within furniture, product and lighting design. Made exclusively for The Conran Shop, this edition is fully upholstered in cotton Nobili velvet.
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.
Crafted in Italy, the shell of the Cross Leg Lounge Chair is exquisitely upholstered in a beautifully soft cotton velvet, while 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.
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 Cross Leg Lounge Chair. A high strength tubular steel frame supports the shell, while the back legs cross over, giving the chair both its name and a unique detail.
Available in beige, sea blue, brown, dark brown, navy blue, black, gold, green, blue and red hues.
