Moving Mountains - Arc lounge chair

Sweeping curves frame chunky wooden lounge chair

Arching pieces of cherry wood frame this graphic lounge chair, created and produced by Brooklyn design studio Moving Mountains.

Called Arc, the lounge chair has a solid wood frame with arching armrests that sweep past each side of the seat and form the front legs too. The armrests wrap round the back of the chair and there are two smaller pieces of wood that shoot down from underneath the armrests to make the back legs.

The thick, boxy cushions on the seat and backrest are upholstered in slubby linen, and there’s also a bolster covered in a pinstripe fabric. It’s made to order with custom finishes available for the frame.

Hawaiian brand founder and designer Syrette Lew named her brand Moving Mountains in reference the tectonic plates that continuously shift the landscape of her home state.

The table was on show at cooperative show space Colony in New York, alongside a collection of furniture and lighting from independent American designers.
