Designed in collaboration between Tom and David Moser, our Chaise takes its inspiration from contemporary furniture designs created by European architects in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Following a cue from the likes of Finnish architect Alvar Aalto and Swiss-born architect and designer Le Corbusier, we’ve replaced tubular steel with the warmth of natural hardwood and precision crafted mortise-and-tenon joinery. The sinuous wood frame supports a webbed back, upholstered in full-grain leather. A removable headrest provides additional comfort, if desired.

In keeping with our tradition, Chaise makes no use of handles or gadgets. Its two positions are achieved with a simple lean, leaving gravity to do the work. The secret is in the geometry of the pivot, called a fulcrum, which is engineered to transfer an adult’s center of gravity from slightly upright to supine in one fluid motion.
The inspiration for this movement? The simplicity of a contemporary Italian-made aluminum lawn chair he sat in one afternoon in a friend’s backyard. After many days of trial and error,Tom and David were finally able to make it work in wood.
True to Moser form, the wood works exceptionally well. Crafted from a series of carefully bent curves that form both the legs and the seat frame, the chair forms a graceful counterpoint to more traditional furniture. The seat is covered in a slender, artful cushion covered in luxurious leather, ensuring sufficient comfort for extended periods of reading, relaxing and, almost inevitably, satisfied napping.
