ELIO LOUNGE CHAIR
Elio Lounge Chair
Reminiscent of the famed “maisons” of Paris, Elio’s precise angles and curves express the luxury of the past through an undeniably modern lens. Influenced by the techniques of Parisian design masters, Duchaufour-Lawrance replicates their concepts while maintaining his recognizable harmonious and graceful shapes. He explains his thought process, “My idea was to create the movement and lightness of a free-flowing cape frozen in time. Comfort is always my top priority, so I opted for a plush pillow and seat so the shawl could be thin and fluid.” The chair’s simple form, suggesting a cloak draped over an ottoman, encourages creative combinations of textiles and leathers, which can transform Elio from conservative to avant-garde.
