Peacock Lounge Chair
Dror’s Peacock lounge chair challenges the laws of physics while making a powerful statement with its spontaneous, irreverent attitude. Dror Studio designed Peacock in 2009 for Cappellini, becoming one of their most iconic pieces. Without sewing or glue, the Chair is constructed using tightly folded felt, giving the Chair its elegant ripple effect and Peacock silhouette. Its base consists of powder-varnished metal, anthracite in color, with upholstery in green or blue.
Dror Benshetrit is the founder of the New York-based studio Dror. Since its launch in 2002, the studio has amassed an award-winning portfolio encompassing product development, interiors, installations, and architectural design.
In his works, one can trace the roots of his style, which emerged from the fusion of the technical knowledge he learned at the Design Academy of Eindhoven and his love of art, which derives from his studies at the Center for Art Education in Tel Aviv. His fascination with geometry, physics, and poetry comes through in his works, pushing design beyond its functional application to create extraordinary atmospheric experiences. The studio's aim, writ large, is to develop unique solutions that emphasize the transformative power of design at various scales and to explore the intersection between nature and technology, organic and non-organic, and the needs of our contemporary lifestyle.
Today, Dror collaborates with important companies such as Boffi, Levi's, Cappellini, Surface Magazine, Swarovski, and Rosenthal, the brand with which he won the iF Product Design Award in 2006
