Nelson Coconut Chair

This classic deserves consideration if you’re in the market for an iconic (and comfortable) lounge chair.

“Intended to combine comfort with freedom of movement, the shape of the Coconut Chair’s white molded shell was inspired by the shape of Eero Saarinen’s Kresge Auditorium at MIT. Echoing both the auditorium’s triangular shape, as well as a portion of coconut shell, the Chair’s unique form invites a number of different seating positions. The shell sits upon a chromed-steel base with three thin legs. A single-piece foam cushion, upholstered in high-quality semi-aniline leather, is molded into the shell.”

Tokujin Yoshioka apprenticed to both Shiro Kuramata and Issey Miyake before he started designing his own line of furniture for Driade.

“Designed by tokujin yoskioka, 2005 for driade.
