Fusion Between Chaise Longue and Rocking Chair
Bird is an unconventional mix between a chaise longue and a rocking chair. The chair, in the shape of a bird, has been part of the Cappelini range for 20 years and now returns as a re-edition by Tom Dixon.
Chaise Longue with Rocking Motion
Designed by Tom Dixon, the lounger with a rocking motion partially reflects the course of the designer’s career. While Dixon's designs were originally made of steel and deliberately designed not to go into serial production, Dixon's work became less and less artisanal.
Some of his early, rebellious work was even adapted for serial production at the beginning of the 1990s. The Bird Chaise Longue was one of these pieces.
Construction and Materials
Solid pine wood is used for the frame of the structure. The padding of the Bird chaise longue consists of spring PU foam of different thicknesses (polyuretan foam).
The cover is conveniently removable and available in various fabrics and colours. For a more exclusive model, Bird can be upholstered with leather.
On demand, the Tom Dixon Bird chaise longue is available in other colours, fabrics and leather variants.
