Bird is an unconventional symbiosis of Chaiselongue and seesaw chair. Like its name reveals, the lounger is similar to a bird, or also a bird’s wings flap.
Bird is produced by the Italian Company Cappellini since 1991. The lounger with seesaw effects that was shaped by the designer Tom Dixon also mirrors a piece of the career of the designer. While Dixon’s designs were initially made out of steel and consciously not created as serial seat and lie objects, his works became less and less handmade. Some of its initial, rebel artworks were even adapted to a serial production in the beginnings of the 1990es – as also the Bird Lounger.
Merely the metal frame reminds of the initial unicum of the piece of furniture. Beside metal, the frame structure is also made out of wood-fibre-mix-panels and massive pine wood. The upholstery of the Bird Lounger consists of differently tight feather-polyurethane-foam. The coating is practically removable and available in different quality fabric variants, and according to the fabric also in numerous colours. For an exclusive variant, Bird is also obtainable with a leather coating.
