Scottish designer Ian Callum recently ventured in the world of furniture and unveiled his take on the iconic Eames Lounge Chair. The new interpretation features a bolder shape and a mix of contemporary materials like exposed carbon fiber, wooden panels or recycled materials, and Bridge of Weir leather, one of the best-rated leather suppliers to the auto industry.
‘We’re very familiar with things like carbon structure and sustainable materials here, so creating the chair was an exercise in experimentation and curiosity,’ the designer says in the interview with the design magazine Wallpaper. ‘Ultimately, we’ll do a series of three different models – it’s a way of getting the experience and working with new suppliers.’
The beautiful lounge chairs are currently just prototypes but the products could be made available to interested customers the interview reveals. For more info or inquire visit Callum Designs’ website.
