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 premium Old Velvet leather.
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 is exquisitely upholstered in supple, superior grade European Old Velvet leather, which is produced in Italy from the best tanneries and dyed-through for rich colour, with water-based finishing that ensures no harmful substances to humans or the environment are used during the process.
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 tan, beige, brown or dark brown hues.
