With the menswear autumn / winter 2016 fashion shows in full swing and the womenswear collections about to kick off, we look at how some of the emerging fashion trends might influence design, as Escaping from reality and Protectionist instincts.
The Take a Line for a Walk swivel armchair was designed by Alfredo Haberli for Moroso in 2003. Since then, the armchair has become an icon of modern design. The armchair’s masculine, streamlined shape is reminiscent of a super villain or spaceship commander’s chair, whilst its distinctive wraparound shell references the wings of traditional armchairs, adding an element of protection as well as a dash of mystery.
The design of the armchair was updated in 2012 with the addition of a removable quilted cover which is attached with a colourful zip running all the way along the contours of the armchair. This has the effect of preserving the sleek, defined shape of the armchair on the outside whilst creating an exuberantly feminine and inviting cocoon on the inside.
The Take a Line for a Walk armchair is suitable for both private and public spaces and is available in multiple configurations (with or without the quilt, with integrated footrest and with separate footstool) finishes and fabric choices in addition to the version illustrated here. Please contact us for more information.
