Designed by Vienna-based EOOS Studio, the Herman Miller Crosshatch Lounge chair is the very definition of versatile. Lightweight and transparent the design employs both handcrafting and technology in its production, using a minimum of materials in surprising ways. The parachute cord is available in four colours; the frame in either an ash or walnut in a range of textiles.
“For us, design is a poetic discipline,” says Gernot Bohmann, one of the triumvirate who with Harald Gründl and Martin Bergmann is EOOS. From their base in Vienna, Austria, these three have been making poetry in the form of furniture, objects and spaces since 1995, for brands from A to Z, literally from Armani (cosmetic stores) to Zumtobel (LED lighting).
