Acclaimed Designer Spotlights The Cirro Lounge Chair

The author of the award winning work Lounge Chair:Cirro by Acclaimed Designer explains, The Cirro lounge chair features a cantilevered seat and is made from custom-laminated cherry veneers. The design was motivated by the Eames Lounge Chair’s innovative use of plywood. Cirro bends the material’s formal limitations to create ambitious volumes, all while using contours that harness the materials great lateral strength. The cantilevered seat yields under the sitter’s weight, creating a sense of floating gently above the ground. The gentle, relaxing feeling of sitting in Cirro inspired its name, which is derived from a prefix for a family of wispy, high-altitude clouds..
