Design Story:

Skald Lounge Chair

Designed 2021

It’s rare that a chair is so defined by its sketch, but Skald captured us from the start. Our goal was to create a low-profile lounge chair that fit nearly any style and setting. The design process quickly became all about balance. A steel framework allowed for a minimal, linear silhouette, but it took some fine-tuning to ensure it was equally strong without being unwieldy.

The slim seat involved the same tricky math. We refined the foam until we had a minimal profile that hit the comfort sweet spot — firm yet yielding. We then added leather upholstery from one of the oldest family run tanneries in Italy, as well as an alpaca velvet and Maharam option. The result is a chair that’s modern yet classic, straightforward yet architectural.

Designing stuff we love.
