Isola Lounge Chair
The Isola Lounge Chair designed by Claesson, Koivisto, and Rune for Tacchini features a wide, concaving seat that is supported by a tubular metal base. At the starting point of their design process for the contemporary lounge chair, the Swedish design studio considered one’s natural tendency to assume a relaxed posture in public spaces. The option to combine the seat with an oval table, built into the left or right side, makes it even more practical, and ideal for use in all contract situations.
