Furniture designer, NaughtOne, are set to launch Pippin, their first flexible mobile lounge chair with a strong sustainability agenda.
(Knaresborough, UK, 8th June 2023) Global furniture designer, NaughtOne, are set to launch their first flexible mobile lounge chair, Pippin, this month at US industry design shows, NeoCon and Design Days, in Chicago from 12-14 June. The unveiling at the shows will see not only the arrival of Pippin, but also Morse Table System, the second of NaughtOne’s products to launch since their compelling rebrand in October of last year.
The Pippin Chair is a welcome addition to the world of flexible furniture, combining comfort, style and mobility. This agile lounge chair is primed for play; soft-edged, solid and creating a sense of cupped support, this is a low-slung chair that brings people together for inspiring conversations and contributions. Pippin is compact, making it the perfect choice for flexible and collaborative spaces of all sizes. It sits on wheels and is deliberately free from arms, making it easy to move, twist and turn with its convenient strap handle.
For Pippin’s designer, Lucy Kurrein, the brief from NaughtOne for an agile, easy-to-move chair was the beginning of a journey to create an upholstered lounge chair which can positively impact the way people behave in their surroundings. Kurrein wanted to create a seat that would make it easy for people sitting down in it to open inspiring conversations, feeling grounded and present. With Pippin you can pull up a seat virtually anywhere.
Kurrein says, “normally when you have flexible, movable furniture it all has a lightweight and temporary feel, as if you’ll just perch there a moment, but with this piece I wanted to make sure there was a feeling of solidity.”
Bolstering their sustainability initiatives, in 2021 NaughtOne launched their Ever Sofa and Chair range – designed using the principles of circularity; easy to service for remanufacturing or disassembling at the end of its life for proper recycling. Now, NaughtOne are taking these principles further with the launch of Pippin, whose construction is glue and staple free. Pippin comes with a tailored, zip-on, zip-off cover that gives the chair its sophisticated personality and the removable cover can be easily replaced should it get damaged or stained, without needing to replace the entire chair.
Pippin can be specified with a choice of 6 standard colours for the strap handle and an almost infinite choice of fabric options. Pippin will be available to order from 3 July 2023 and will use the 3D construction method, allowing it to be fixed together without the need for glue.
