4PM chaise longue by Massproductions
Dezeen Showroom: as part of Stockholm Design Week 2022, Swedish brand Massproductions is presenting a lounge chair made from laminated wood that provides comfort without the need for upholstery.
The 4PM chaise longue is available in two types of wood, including a warm-toned Douglas fir and a slightly darker cherry wood, as well as in a self-build version that pays homage to the work of Italian designer Enzo Mari.
"The chaise is a combination of curved and flat parts, and has been designed to provide the best possible comfort," said Massproductions.
"From above, the profile of 4PM tapers towards the footrest, which enables the feet to fall comfortably on both sides – something that also simplifies getting in or out."
The chaise longue has a raised footrest that can double up as a seat or side table, while an adjustable headrest provides the only bit of cushioning.
Following in the footsteps of Enzo Mari's seminal Autoprogettazione collection of self-assembly furniture, Massproductions has also released instructions and drawing for how to build a simplified version of the design from scratch using materials found at any hardware store.
"You may not be able to afford 4PM," said the brand's chief designer Chris Martin. "But with instructions, you can make your own and get the luxury of the chaise longue without the luxurious price tag."
The product was launched during a pared-back version of Stockholm Design Week, which is taking place in venues throughout the Swedish capital until 13 February 2022 before returning in September to coincide with the postponed Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.
