In the furniture typology, it is undoubtedly the lounge chair that is most linked to pleasure: pleasure of the user, who use it to enjoy the present time, pleasure of the designer, who frees himself from the utilitarian constraints which drives tables, chairs or sideboards design. That’s why design lounge chairs concentrate the greatest creativity, but also the greatest luxury, since it often only takes one or two to furnish a living room.
So, no surprise if Scandinavian Design is so rich in exceptional lounge chairs, "pieces" that one dreams of affording, spectacularly shaped icons, such as Arne Jacobsen's famous Egg, the Alvar Aalto’s Tank, the Pelican by Finn Juhl, the Flag Halyard Chair by Hans Wegner, the Spanish Chair by Børge Mogensen – and so many other masterpieces that we would like to bring all together in our living room.
These Scandinavian pieces of furniture that made the history of design have a large lineage, from the famous Eames Lounge by Americans Charles and Ray Eames, who used the molded plywood principle developed by Alvar Aalto and Arne Jacobsen, to contemporary works that are openly inspired by them.
