It is easy to dismiss the Arch Chair as just another lounge chair, but it’s not. This chair designed by Girelli Studio is only a concept, but we can already imagine this being displayed in posh hotel lobbies or luxury homes worldwide.
Girelli Studio’s work appears structural but then is soft with the curves and the natural wood finish. It offers a cozy feeling to anyone who wants to sit on the chair. The design makes it a statement piece ideal for those who like one-of-a-kind chairs.
Designer: Girelli Studio
The Arch Chair can be a good conversation starter. You will not stop talking about the lines and structural form. It’s more of a chair for lounging with its height and size. It has a slanted seat surface and a backrest made of plywood.
This new chair design is mid-century, but it also reminds us of Japanese architecture, especially with the lines. It blends different shapes to produce a minimalist chair with an architectural influence. The solid chair is a nice piece of furniture. Anyone who will encounter the chair for the first time will find it beautiful.
The Arch Chair looks like a modern rocking armchair, but it doesn’t really rock. The studio behind this, Girelli Studio, is a multidisciplinary design studio that is into product design. It’s also a design consultancy that focuses on industrial design.
The chair design blends different shapes together. Overall, the chair offers a minimalist and architectural feel. Again, we see the Japanese design influence, so you know where the minimalist aesthetic comes from.
The Arch Chair rendered images show us the chair is available in darker colors–brown and black–plus a red Arch Chair has also been presented. David Girelli’s design studio has worked on several other furniture pieces. For example, he came up with the Ryokō Armchair we featured last year. It also presented some Japanese design inspiration, especially an old Japanese folding chair from the 1960s.
