The Method Lounge Chair
The brief for Method was simple; design a lounge chair with an interesting mix of materials. After sketching for some time we landed on an idea where the main components of a lounge (seat, back, and arms) are separate ‘modules’ tied together by a thin steel frame. We felt this approach would impart a certain lightness to the chair and allow us to really dial in the comfort by slightly tweaking the ‘modules’ in relation to one another. A few more rough sketches to figure out the construction details and it was time to head into the shop and make something we could all sit on. The prototype came together easily and required only a few slight adjustments to get us all to agree the comfort was on point. We gave the wood element on the arms the pebble treatment, removing all the sharp edges and softening the flat surfaces. We really love the material combos we came up with; durable (and cleanable) leather seats paired with the plush velvet of the back. Shearlings a new material for us and we think it works really well with the playful nature of this silhouette.
Designing stuff we love.
