Details

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec created this expansive armchair and ottoman by using an extremely strong, precisely shaped knit which is stretched over the metal frame like a fitted stocking. Thanks to the knit sling cover, the Slow Chair and Ottoman combines soft comfort with ergonomic support, which is further enhanced by thin seat and back cushions. The translucent sling cover replaces the thick cushions of traditional armchairs, resulting in a design that is lightweight, yet generously proportioned. The restrained appearance of the Slow Chair is equally appealing in the living room or winter garden, while offering unrestrained seating comfort.

MATERIALS:

  • Frame/Cover: tubular steel frame with extremely strong, precisely shaped knitted fabric which is stretched over the frame
  • Upholstery: polyurethane foam and polyester wadding
  • Base: polished or powder-coated die-cast aluminum legs

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Height: 31 cm / 12.25 Inch
  • Width: 69.5 cm / 27.25 Inch
  • Depth: 52.5 cm / 20.75 Inch

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec

Ronan - France, 1971 / Erwan - France, 1976

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s working collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their distinct personalities and a shared notion of diligence with the intention to reach more balance and fineness.

In 1997, they presented their Disintegrated Kitchen at the Salon du Meuble in Paris and were spotted by Giulio Cappellini, who gave them their first industrial design projects, notably the Lit clos (“Closed Bed”) and the Spring Chair. A meeting with Vitra’s Rolf Fehlbaum resulted in their conception of a new kind of office system, Joyn, in 2002. This was the beginning of a special partnership that has borne fruit in numerous projects, including Algues, the Alcove Sofa, the Worknest, the Slow Chair, the Vegetal and L’Oiseau. Since 2004, the Bouroullecs have also been working with Magis, for whom they have designed two complete furniture collections, Striped and Steelwood as well as additional projects such as the Pila chair, the Pilo table, the Central and Tambour tables.

In 2010, they debuted a new collection of tableware for Alessi. Since 2011, they have designed the Piani and Aim lamps for Flos, the Losanges rug for Nani Marquina, the Osso chair for Mattiazzi.

Today Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec design for numerous manufacturers, Vitra, Kvadrat, Magis, Kartell, Alessi, Mattiazzi, Flos, and more recently, Iittala.
