Serie 3088 Lounge Chair
The Serie 3088 lounge chair, designed by Piero Lissoni, offers optimal comfort thanks to the multi-density polyurethane foam padding. The frame is made of medium-density conglomerate wood panels, solid fir wood and poplar plywood. The legs of the Serie 3088 are made of polished chromed metal or beech with a natural, walnut stain or wengé finish. The removable cover of this lounge chair is available in the fabrics and leathers from the collection.
Industrial but playful might sound like a contradiction, but in the hands of Piero Lissoni, it makes perfect sense. The Italian architect and designer has become one of the most accomplished of his generation, with collaborations with everyone from Alessi to Flos to Tecno. After training as an architect at the prestigious Politecnico di Milano University, Lissoni formed his own firm to create witty takes on modernism’s clean lines.
In 1996, he launched a visual communication agency, Graph.x, followed 17 years later by Lissoni Architettura, which handles interior design projects. But Lissoni’s furnishings really show off his charm: his Otto seating system for Cassina, named for the way the numeral is pronounced in Italian, tosses a titular number of comfy cushions into a slim aluminum rectangle for a perfect blend of hard and soft. And his Extrasoft system for Living Divani tosses away the frame entirely. It’s a chic take on the kid’s bedroom favorite, the beanbag, but with a lifetime’s worth of possible arrangements.
