Eddy Chair | Bonaldo


SKU: BND-SEA-036 Categories: ,


The shapes of Eddy draw their inspiration from the cycling
world, from the minimal and elemental graphic design of the
fixie, the vintage bicycle. “If you think about it, many of the first
prototypes in the history of design were made in cycling
workshops,” explains Alain Gilles, the designer of the armchair,
“because that’s where the masters of tubular metal
manufacturing were, and they had the expertise required to
make those objects with such essential style.” The Eddy
armchair is built, using the same logic as bicycle construction,
around a tubular metal frame. Even the way in which the various
parts of the frame are connected – using “quick release” fittings
– is an obvious reference to the cycling world. The many colours
in which the metal frame is available, and the countless choices
among leather, eco-leather and fabric for the seat, make
graphic play possible. The armrests can be embellished with
side pockets which are useful for storing books and magazines
or to keep remote controls within easy reach. Eddy is available
with headrest (Eddy up) or without (Eddy).
