Cini Boeri Ottoman

Cini Boeri 2008

Paying particular attention to how people use lounge seating, Cini Boeri designed her third lounge collection for Knoll to deliver multiple sitting zones. The matching ottoman complements the sofa and lounge chair or, on its own, makes for a great pull-up seating option in any setting. The entire collection harmonizes generous proportions and sleek lines to deliver a modern solution for today’s more expansive interiors. The ottoman is supported on a metal chassis with casters for easy movement and increased flexibility.

Cini Boeri, who designed two lounge collections and many showrooms for Knoll in the 1970s, was an obvious selection for Knoll Director of Design Benjamin Pardo to make when he began looking for a designer to develop a new lounge collection in 2007. Boeri, one of the preeminent Italian Modernists, responded to the design challenge by applying modern simplicity and materials to proportions more common to the overstuffed sofa and lounge chair.

The result, according to Pardo, “is really something quite practical. The sofa in particular has great nap potential, with low arms that are perfect headrests. The seat and a half is a great place to sit down and snuggle with a child or a dog, or also sit down and work with your computer. All of the pieces are quite deep, and big in scale with big floppy pillows that you can support yourself with.”
