The ultimate companion to the NY Lounge Chair, the NY Ottoman is finished with coordinating blue fabric and can be easily folded away for simple storage. Designed in 1958 by Takeshi Nii, the multi award-winning NY Lounge Chair and ottoman were inspired by the iconic director’s chair.
After seeing a beautiful chair with a fabric seat in Denmark and noticing a folding director’s chair in a pre-WWI magazine, Nii was inspired to create the NY Lounge Chair and ottoman. The NY Ottoman combines the same folding mechanism as the NY Lounge Chair and is finished with blue fabric for a superior level of comfort.
Taking its name from ‘Nii’, the designer’s surname, and ‘Ny’ the Danish word for new or fresh, the blue NY Ottoman foot stool presents a contemporary take on the folding director’s chair, both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The winner of numerous design awards, the NY Chair became a permanent feature at the New York MoMA in 1970.
Coordinating NY Lounge Chair also available.
