Acre Lounge Chair by Blu Dot

Acre lounge chair by Blu Dot

Dezeen Showroom: the Acre lounge chair by US brand Blu Dot combines a minimalist silhouette with enough back support to remain comfortable for hours at a time.

The Acre lounge chair is a riff on one of the brand's earlier products, the Field chair, reimagined with a more compact form that works solo or in pairs.

The chair has a tubular base made of stainless or blackened steel and an upholstered foam shell seat.

A tucked seam detail on the rear adds visual interest while also helping to create the lumbar support that makes the Acre armchair suited for hours of reading.

"Prototyping taught us a key to comfort would be additional lumbar support to the lower back," said Blu Dot. "Seeing an opportunity for an upholstery detail, we designed a subtle tucked seam that provided a smooth transition from arms to back."

Acre is available in a range of upholstery options including two colours of velvet, a linen blend and a dark grey fabric made of 80 per cent post-consumer recycled polyester.
