Phar Lap is the lounge chair designed to bring comfort and protection to collective spaces, thanks to a slender structure inspired by the design of the seventies.

Editor's notes

With Phar Lap, French designer Gordon Guillaumier presents a refined take on '70s design, characterised by dramatic curves and oversized proportions. Produced by Italian workplace specialist LaCividina, the upholstered seat features a tall backrest that sits in a slim metal frame. Thanks to its gentle round lines and the contrast between the seat and the simple frame, the chair feels light and dynamic. 

What the brand says

The shaped backrest extends upwards to allow a distinct posture and, at the same time, shield the seat from the surrounding environment. The distinctive element of the seat is the elegant visible structure, which in this project is taken to the extreme with a result of solidity and refined geometry.
