To serve as striking companions to his Bellmonde dining table for Dedon, Danish designer Henrik Pedersen has devised an armchair and lounge chair that are intended to cultivate a “chill-out atmosphere” and bring people together.
After determining that curved and rounded shapes are ergonomically ideal for comfort, Pedersen crafted a wraparound “wing” to form a continuous and combined arm- and backrest.
Woven using Dedon’s proprietary synthetic fibre (which has a soft hand and is non-toxic, UV- and water-resistant and 100 per cent recyclable), the cocooning element resembles a traditional crochet pattern and, combined with the generous seat, easily accommodates a variety of seating positions.
The Bellmonde lounge and armchairs are offered in a new colourway called Pine that perfectly complements the black pepper-powder coated aluminum frame.
The dining table with aluminum legs (in black pepper or creamy lipari; in four sizes), meanwhile, can be specified with a smooth high-pressure laminate (in black pepper or solid lipari) or mineral composite (in ebony or mineral grey) surface.
