"The design process with Cycle was based on the reduction of elements. Following a geometric approach we wanted to create something that appears very light yet is elegant and speaks to quality," states Wittmann. "When you are doing something without embellishments every line and every detail is critical," adds Landuris. "We spent days working on the juncture of the metal base as it turns to meet the upholstery. That transition had to be perfect to make the piece work." The Cycle family of products is comprised of a round stool, two round benches and an oval bench. In each, a tailored upholstered cushion floats above two symmetric loops of stainless steel. The exception is the elegant elongation of one metal loop to create the oval bench. The sheer simplicity of the benches and stools allow them to blend into a furniture landscape or to stand out as strong accents when they are upholstered in active fabrics or colorful leathers.
