What you see is what you get. Graceful contours of 3D bent ply that stun from all angles. What you can’t see is that this lounge is a pleasure to sit in. A beautifully sculpted chair deserves an equally considered cushion. Formed to fit the seat, the upholstered pad provides a soft landing. Nonesuch, the perfect place to sit and never look at social media again. In two wood finishes.
We set out with a goal of creating a comfortable yet visually minimal lounge which took advantage of 3D ply. In our shop, we created prototype seat shells in cardboard, foam, and fiberglass to get the form, overall proportion, and comfort perfected. The result of fine tuning these mock-ups was a wide sweeping curved seat with waterfall edges, a design we could not have achieved with traditional ply molding methods. Restricting Nonesuch to wood and steel ensured that the shape of the seat remained the focus. This meant that our design’s base required a minimalist’s restraint. In that process, two base designs emerged—one stationary, and the other a more contract friendly swivel.
