or Call to Order

The Doyl chair is a simple, comfort­able chair with refined details created in just one mate­r­ial. The Doyl chair intro­duces a typol­ogy of an uphol­stered thick leather chair where the classic propor­tions are inverted, trans­form­ing lines that are normally concave into convex sections, and thus enhanc­ing the percep­tion of soft­ness. The design­ers placed great impor­tance on graphic mark­ings, created through contin­u­ous stitch­ing on both the fronts and backs of the chair which corre­spond to the cutting lines and junc­tions of the thick leather. The thick leather is folded, curved and turned inside out, but never cut. The uphol­stery adds surpris­ing comfort for a thick leather chair, while alter­na­tive tech­ni­cal mate­ri­als offer brightly colored variations.
