A tribute to Ludovico Magistretti, the Lud’O lounge chair designed for Cappellini recreates the softness of a feather-padded jacket. The design concept is simple yet innovative: a supporting structure wearing a soft “dress” upholstery that can be easily changed depending on the seasons, occasions or mood.
A range of five “dress” alternatives includes a recycled nylon sports upholstery and recycled PET material, created entirely from recycled plastic and marine debris.
The plinth features deliberately exasperated proportions forming a large swivel cone, available in aluminum. There is also a version based on 4 spokes and 4 legs made of natural or dyed wood. The body, shaped by a rotational mold, is made of recycled and durable plastic. The structure is deliberately essential because it is the “dress” that the armchair is “wearing” that makes the product, the quilted effect upholstery its distinctive feature. The product is completed with a matching footrest with the same concept.
