Alain Gilles took inspiration from the world of cycling when designing the bike-inspired lounge chair, which features elements from the eco-friendly form of transportation.

The Eddy lounge chair, which was named after the esteemed Belgian cyclist Eddy Merckx, was designed with an elegant frame that draws parallels to the frame's of vintage road bikes. The chair is comprised of a series of customizable elements using quick-release locks, which are commonly used to attach wheels to a bike frame. Like a bike, these chairs can easily be added to, offering home owners with the possibility of making each chair their own.

To ensure the product is even more reminiscent of a bicycle, it features leather side pockets, which can hold newspapers, books or other miscellaneous items.
