Elio easy chair
Elio, referring to the Greek sun god Helios and designed by Canadian design firm Yabu Pushelberg, aims to capture a universally familiar, fleeting moment in time: a sunset. Inspired by the motion of light reflecting and refracting on landscapes and objects throughout the day, Elio captures the luminous, silky hues light conceives in the sky at dusk.
The easy chair takes the collection’s cocooning effect to a more indulgent level with a deeper, wider seat to sink into. The chair is framed by natural teak, which supports the seating shell primarily through the back legs. The handwoven seat draws upward and inward to create a warm, intimate feel. Multiple soft shades are woven into each strand of Tricord rope, which mimics the touch of natural light and makes each low chair unique.
