or Call to Order

The Do-Maru lounge chair is named after the ancient armour worn by samurai warriors, made up of painted and deco­rated thick leather plates that covered and protected the hero’s body. Like the swivel armchair Almora, designed by Doshi-Levien in 2014, once again the shell of the seat is made up of a couple of super­im­posed bodies, soft­ened by paddings that can be uphol­stered with either fabric or leather. The cast aluminium back support boldly under­lines the conical profile of the small armchair, while the ante­rior support is in tubular metal with black chromed or pewter painted finishes, studied to match the colours of the body: white, black and tortora.

Doshi Levien

England

A design studio based in London, Doshi Levien is the brainchild of Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien, who have been collaborating together for over 10 years. With influences of visual culture and industrial precision, their work in furniture design is a blend of modern and Indian heritage. With rich textiles and architectural structure as inspiration, their furniture plays with material and pattern. Together they have collaborated with Moroso, Kvadrat, B&B Italia, Cappellini, Camper, Swarovski and Galerie Kreo. They create unique and modern pieces that work in many design aesthetics.

Doshi Levien is a brand synonymous with cultural hybridism. Founded by Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien, the partnership marries together Doshi’s love for materials with Levien’s deep understanding of technique and industrial design. Having been raised in India, she has an astute eye for visual culture with the goal of making products that can contribute to a society. Levien has a background of fine cabinet making, and received a Masters in furniture design from Royal College of Art in London, where they met and formed a partnership dedicated to uniting culture, technology, industrial design, and fine craftsmanship.
