A bold chair concept with an imaginative design.
Multidisciplinary design firm Girelli Studio focuses on industrial and product design. Founder David Girelli’s designs are minimalist and elegant, often echoing Scandinavian and Japanese design cues. The Arch Chair is a perfect example. Currently only a concept, this chair is bold and sophisticated at the same time. It tastefully blends elements of mid-century modern design and minimalist architecture in an eye-catching silhouette that is sculptural and contemporary. While it appears as having a rocking base, Arch stands firmly on an angular structure that curves at the back. The slanted seat enhances seating comfort, making the user feel like they’re plunging into a pool of relaxation.
Angular armrests that mirror the clean lines of the frame complement the angled seat and the rounded back structure. Crafted with a sturdy ash wood frame and base, this creative chair features a plywood backrest. The studio presented the concept in different colors, from dark brown and black to red. Regardless of finish and hue, the Arch Chair would make a striking addition to any living space or hospitality setting. As far as lounge chairs go, this one certainly doubles as a decorative accent in a room. Images © Girelli Studio.
