contemporary chaise longue / leather / metal / polyurethane
WIREFLOW by Michel Rojkind
leather, metal, polyurethane
we designed the wireflow chaise longue creating a soft and flexible shell, evoking simple and fluid lines with particular emphasis on ergonomics and comfort. the intention of the metal frame design is to create a continuous organic geometry that flows along a path like energy flowing throughout the body. the leather seams reflect the digitally designed isocurves of the surface that are represented in high quality handcraft stitching. the inspiration for the wireflow chaise longue came from the concept of subtle movement unfolding in time. the design expresses simplicity, dynamism, lightness and continuity.
a large chaise longue consisting of a painted tube structure and a moulded body in flexible polyurethane with a fixed leather cover. the leather upholstery is characterised by a series of “double needle” seams that create a geometric scan of the seating surface. the body is supported by a metal frame made of a high resistance 25 mm diameter tube, bent and shaped using a variable radius calender. the characterising element of the tube structure is the sinuosity of its form that embraces and supports the shell, creating a continuous geometrically soft “thread” in perfect harmony with the seat shell.
