a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
The Rocco Chair had originally been developed as a commission by Scirocco Studios in order to introduce the new Volkswagen Scirocco. The designer decided to create a "sports chair". Since the act of sitting is never really active, it was thought that perhaps the act of lying down in a chaise lounge could involve a little bit more participation from its user. In order to use the chair, one must have good balance and a sense of adventure. Whilst being extremely comfortable, the chair allows his or her owner to actively sit in it.
The chair has been redesigned in order to reintroduce it through Next Level Galerie in Paris.
