Method Lounge Chair by Blu Dot

Dezeen Showroom: US brand Blu Dot has paired a playful silhouette with mismatched upholstery in its Method lounge chair.

Meant to look more like a "stellar medley of disparate elements" than a familiar object, the Method lounge chair has a slim seat, back and armrests set atop an architectural frame.

Blu Dot conceptualised the design by imagining the main components of a lounge chair as separate "modules", tied together by a thin steel frame.

"We felt this approach would impart a certain lightness to the chair and allow us to really dial in the comfort by slightly tweaking the 'modules' in relation to one another," the brand explained.

While the frame is made from powder-coated steel, the seat and back come upholstered in complementary textures – durable leather on the seat and velvet on the backrest, with colours ranging from tomato red to ink grey.

Alternatively, the chair is also available in a new all-over shearling option.
