Häberli brings out the communication abilities of the object and the emotional bond which it can create: the chair draws on an archaic yet extremely modern visual force which recalls the idea of a cocooning, motherly comfort, with the big ears which can be wrapped around the head in search of protection or isolation from the surrounding environment.
According to Alfredo Häberli, the ears lounger emerged in a working procedure called Rapid Prototyping. At that time, Häberli read a book about the artist Paul Klee, whose explanation was to “take a line for a walk” – this is how the designer called his creation in the end – that’s the story of the inspiration for the weightless design of a lounge chair with enormous wings. One year later, the upholstered edition by Moroso emerged – another small detail in this autonomous structure.
