Four plywood parts, four leather cushions and two armrests, two stainless steel bases. These are the ingredients to create the mythical Lounge set. An innovative construction, which was done very little at the time, and this armchair accompanied by its ottoman had a phenomenal success from the moment it was marketed in 1956. The original by Ray and Charles combines a new manufacturing method with a high-end look. More than 60 years later, the biggest names in design, as well as enthusiasts, are unanimous, Lounge is the icon par excellence.
In the minds of the American design duo it was clear that they had to meet a specific demand: to make and think a chair with a modern look and keep the comfort of old club chairs. Because often, modernism does not merge with comfort. Eureka! they found it. And according to some, the inspiration for this chair's perfect tilt simply came from the shape of a baseball glove.
