A good way to gauge a seat's comfort rating is by evaluating how easy it would be to fall asleep in it. With its nice reclined backrest and its firm but soft cushions, the Lu Chair by Sand & Birch seems like it would support a satisfying siesta.

Samanta Snidaro and Andrea Fino's design takes a snail-like shape that's composed of rounded slices of polyurethane and Alcantara. Its internal metal framework has helped to configure the cozy perch into a curled up form, intently encouraging its sitter to take a similar pose.

One description of the recliner references its formal musculature, leading the viewer to see how the semicircular sections seem to attempt to clench together. And beyond structure to where style is concerned, the Lu Chair by Sand & Birch strives to bridge primitive and contemporary aesthetics.
