Folded Fabric Seating Solutions

The Capdell 'Panel' Lounge Chair was Designed by Lucy Kurrein

— September 7, 2019 — Art & Design
The Capdell 'Panel' lounge chair has been designed by Lucy Kurrein as a relaxed seating option for the home or workplace that merges materials for a high-end yet comfortable solution.

The chair features a powder-coated flat steel frame that has been paired with either felt or tailored leather in order to offer enhanced comfort and support for the sitter. This also gives the seat its hollow aesthetic that allows the upper material to seemingly float above the frame for an airy, almost mid-century modern feel.

The Capdell 'Panel' lounge chair has been designed in a wide array of color and material options to suit the aesthetic choices of individuals seamlessly. The chair is the winner of the Design Guild Mark award for 2019 and also earned Kurrein the Young Designer of the Year award from Homes & Gardens magazine.
