During Maison d’objet in Paris Swedish designer trio Claesson Koivisto Rune will show their new working chair, “Isola” for Tacchini. It’s a sort of new typology for armchairs; a table built in to a organically-shaped and generous seat shell, where you can both relax and work.
While using these devices in many public or semi-private situations, we noticed that seating postures change. People tend to lounge around, seeking unconventional positions and generally sitting in a more relaxed fashion. As a response to this, we designed a wide and roomy seat-shell with a gently-organic shape lacking an obvious direction. Combined with an integrated, oval tabletop, Isola moves away from other more rigid solutions and encourages more open and intuitive use, says Claesson Koivisto Rune.
Of course, having the small table close at hand makes for a very practical place to rest your (analogue) book, glass of wine, or a bite to eat too.
