Lounge chair for B&B Italia
The name Do-maru evokes lightweight Samurai armours made using leather and lacquer that wrap and embrace the body. The chair is composed of two overlapping moulded shells to form an embracing seat which is made comfortable by two inner moulded upholstered pads available in fabric or leather. These small lounge chairs extend the iconic language that was established for the Almora lounge chair also designed by Doshi Levien for B&B Italia.
The rear legs are die cast aluminium shapes designed to mirror the conical gesture of the seat shell. The front legs are swaged tubular metal in black chrome and pewter complimenting the shell finishes that are white, black and dove painted.
