Ripple Chair / Chair

Ripple Chair
Ripple Chair

The Ripple lounge chair is inspired by the beauty of natural ripples in water, and by Scandinavian furniture such as Wegner’s Shell Chair and Jacobson’s Lily Chair. It is a comfortable lounge chair, giving us a space to sit and relax. Like The Lily chair, it is a visual feast created by the edges of two planes and visual harmony from two dimensions to three dimensions. It has only two planes—seat and back—but the chair itself creates a variety of views. By moving around the chair, you see the beauty of the chair variously presented by the visual connection of ripple patterns and the curved edges, from 2D to 3D perspectives.
