Lugano seating range by Rock Galpin for Morgan

Dezeen Showroom: British furniture brand Morgan has launched Lugano, a seating collection with cocooning backrests, as part of this year's London Design Festival.

Created by Rock Galpin, the Lugano range comprises a signature lounge chair as well as a smaller lounge chair and a dining chair, which the designer says help to "nurture their sitter with warmth and support".

The Lugano collection includes a large signature lounge chair and a smaller lounge chair with plush cushioning

The seating is composed of an upholstered backrest that embraces the user and a plush cushion seat supported by a simple timber frame.

The range was designed with what Galpin describes as a "make once, make well" approach to adhere to Morgan's ongoing commitment to sustainable design.

Each chair consists of three components – the back and armrests, the seat pad and the frame – all of which can be replaced or updated over the chair's lifetime to reduce its environmental footprint.

Lugano can be upholstered in a wide array of fabrics and leathers while the solid timber frame is available in certified beech, walnut, ash or oak as well as 11 different polish colours.
