Elio, referring to the Greek sun god Helios and designed by Canadian design firm Yabu Pushelberg, aims to capture a universally familiar, fleeting moment in time: a sunset. Inspired by the motion of light reflecting and refracting on landscapes and objects throughout the day, Elio captures the luminous, silky hues light conceives in the sky at dusk.
The high back easy chair shelters you with a gently curved backrest and cushion and generous, deep seat. The chair is framed by natural teak, which supports the seating shell primarily through the back legs. The handwoven seat and high back draw upward and inward to create a warm, intimate feel. Multiple soft shades are woven into each strand of Tricord rope, which mimics the touch of natural light and makes each lounge chair unique.
