Architecture & Associés Residential Lounge Chair

Architecture & Associés 2012

The Lounge Collection unites casual comfort with refined elegance and adds a dash of high-fashion. The stunning design explores the contrast between soft and hard, with an inviting, upholstered core enveloped by a rigid exterior surround. A signature leg elegantly delivers the lounge to the floor.

“Usually as architects everything is about the right line. For Knoll we wanted a really particular line, really straight, really well designed. The challenge was to find a dialogue between this sharp, really well designed line and the softness of the interior.

“Everything was about the right proportions, the right balance. The high back is interesting in a room if you need shelter, if you need to be alone with your computer or your book. We wanted to create a space within a space—a nest. This was the basis of our process. For us the sofa can live almost anywhere. It’s quite easy to live with.”

-Pierre Beucler and Jean-Christophe Poggioli
