Inspired by the iconic Italian speedboat of 1960s, the Riva Aquarama, these lounge chairs bring an unprecedented speed and dynamism to the home environment. Visually slicing though the space around them, they introduce a strong axial force to contend with. In this way one piece of furniture activates the surrounding architecture.
Carved from Old English Walnut, one can enjoy the highly irregular grain and cloudy colouring close up, while gasping at the fast and sensual curves from further away. The seat is custom made to your taste, with a range of coloured leather combinations available. A strong smell of wood and leather provides another sensual reminder of its point of inspiration.
Each chair is handmade in the United Kingdom. Prices start at £5,000.
