The Norwegian designer Andreas Engesvik has recently designed collection of furniture for Stockholm brand Fogia and added a lounge chair with oversized cushions to it.
The unique Bollo chair has upholstered cushions that cover its back, seat and arms. The design joins his Tiki seating and Bowl Table already in Fogia’s range.
“Bollo was initiated as a typical Scandinavian lounge chair with slim features and modest use of materials,” Engesvik said. “The final result however shows a chair driven by comfort, both visually and in use.”
The tops of the seat and back are curved slightly emphasizing the soft forms, and the armrests wrap over the horizontal poles to created an inverted hook shape in profile. Embracing the slim metal base,the soft volumes create an interesting assembly between the base and cushions.
“Bollo has a strong character inspired by its inherent level of comfort with generously shaped cushions and bold appearance,” said Engesvik
Each of the rounded cushions as parts of the chair is pulled in with a line of stitching along the centre. Options for soft textiles or leather in various colours can be matched to the legs.
