LEMNI, DESIGN MARCO LAVIT
"Lemni was born from the dialogue between two universes, that of Living Divani oriented towards product design, and the types of projects my studio usually deals with, that are collectables and one-offs. The initial idea for the development of this product was to work on a theme that is quite dear to me, the easychair: I have always been interested in this sort of very simple, very light objects in which you have a band, whether fabric or leather, suspended from a steel frame. The structure of Lemni, in fact, was conceived as a continuous gesture: Lemni comes from the Latin “Lemniscus”, or the lemniscate curve, which is a geometric shape that repeats itself like an upside-down eight, like the symbol of infinity: a geometric exercise in itself, that pushed me in transforming it into a 3d volume making it become a structure that could support this leather seat. Finally, a cylindrical bolster, which is the only padded element of the seat, imagined as a solid and simple volume that conveys the idea of comfort that an armchair should emanate”. —Marco Lavit
The Lemni armchair by Marco Lavit moves with ease from the living to the night area, offering an unexpected refuge of refinement that captures for its light aesthetic. Suspended seat in saddle leather, balanced on a metal structure in black painted tubular steel, it traces a design in the air welcoming also the backrest roll cushion. Somewhat furniture, somewhat sculpture, this intimate and chic observatory on the world reveals the desire to relieve from superfluous weights and soar in the air, enchanting with its graphic vitality.
