Flint by Jehs+Laub

January 2017
The basis of this new chair is a circle that extends upwards into an imaginary square: like a flower petal, the Flint easy chair released in 2017 by COR unfolds to create the basic shape of a calyx. “In terms of formal design, it can be compared to the methods used in sculpture”, explains designer Jürgen Laub. “Everything that is superfluous has been cut away to reveal the owing contours of the body, the back, the armrests, and the round seating surface.”The result is a comparatively compact easy chair that is rotatable, offering legroom and a high degree of seating comfort.
