More about this product
Designed in collaboration between Tom and David Moser and introduced in 2000, the, the Chaise takes its inspiration from furniture designs created by European architects in the 1920's and 1930's. Taking our cue from the likes of Alvar Aalto and Le Corbusier, we've replaced tubular steel with the warmth of natural cherry and mortise-and-tenon joinery. The sinuous cherry frame supports a webbed back, upholstered in full-grain leather. A removable headrest provides additional comfort, if desired.
The two-position Chaise reclines fully without any handles or gadgets. Simply lean back and let gravity do the rest. The secret is in the geometry of the pivot, engineered to transfer an adult’s center of gravity from slightly upright to supine in one fluid motion. Tom Moser’s inspiration for this pivot? A contemporary Italian-made aluminum lawn chair he sat in one afternoon in a friend’s backyard. After many days of trial and error, he and David were finally able to make it work in wood.
