Auckland Lounge Chair
The Auckland Lounge Chair, designed by Jean-Marie Massaud, is an updated version of the classic swivel lounge. An inviting and comfortable lounge chair that juxtaposes different materials and thicknesses to lend present-day relevance and versatility. It is available with or without a headrest that can be adjusted to eight height positions. The upholstery choices for this design armchair are leather or removable fabric.
Born in Toulouse in 1966, Jean-Marie Massaud graduated in 1990 from Les Ateliers, Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle, Paris. After working in both Asia and France, he opened his own office in Paris in 1994 dedicating himself to both industrial and furniture design along with building important relationships with brands like Authentics, Baccarat, and Magis. His collaboration with Marc Berthier and his work in the field of urban planning led him towards design and architecture. His research into the sensory and emotional responses engendered by design has led to a signature contextual approach developing objects for a number of brands including: B&B Italia, Cassina, Cappellini, Cacharel, Lancôme, Poltrona Frau, Tronconi and Yamaha. He has been the recipient of numerous design awards and his work is now included in the permanent collections of several museums worldwide.
