Focus On : The Rio Chair
Introducing the newest member of the Lozi collection, our stunning new curved plywood and solid oak Rio Chair! Launched on the 19th of September 2017 as part of the Shoreditch Design Triangle, one of the designs districts running alongside London Design Festival, this gorgeous chair is Lozi's first foray into lounge seating and armchairs.
Named in honour of an exciting upcoming project in collaboration with the iconic Rio Cinema in Dalston, the Rio Chair continues to explore the techniques and design elements from Lozi’s last collection showcased at Clerkenwell Design Week in May.
Made from beautiful curved birch plywood and solid oak, with oak veneer, the Rio chair is the culmination of Lozi’s continuous research into new ways of combining digital manufacturing and traditional woodworking methods. Inspired by the technological advances on display at the Plywood: Material of The Modern World exhibition at the V&A museum, the Rio Chair aims to challenge the traditional uses of plywood in furniture. By applying such a rigid material to a reclining relaxing chair, Lozi aims to showcase plywood's versatility and highlight the material's innate elegance.
Manufactured in our Hackney road workshop and finished by hand, it comes with a denim cushion, also hand made in London, available in three colours (Blue, Gold and White)
Rio Chair, With Denim Cushion ___________ £720
