The Desmos Armchair by Sotiris Lazou

April 13, 2009

Sotiris Lazou has designed the Desmos armchair for the Greek manufacturer Varangis.

From Varangis:

With volumes reduced to simple geometric forms, this imaginative armchair becomes a weightless object, a functional, everyday piece of furniture turned into something beautiful. The idea for the armrests came from the scribbles of the designer’s young daughter on a household chair. Both back and seat are laminated bending. Thin sections of wood are glued to a pre-existing curvy organic form, resulting in a backrest first molded to embrace the body and then pierced through CNC routing technology.
