The D’Urso Swivel Chair strikes a playful balance between formality and whimsy, offering a modern twist on the classic cocktail lounge chair.
Joseph Paul D’Urso, who helped pioneer the “high-tech” movement in interior design, collaborated with Knoll in the 1980s to introduce lounge and table collections. In 2008, he returned to design a new sofa and lounge chair.
D’Urso: “Being as I’ve done interiors for about 40 years, I have a pretty good idea of all the products that are out there. I am constantly looking for things and not finding exactly what I want. So, I use that as a challenge to try to design something that suits the function that I need.
"The lounge is meant to be a small, but comfortable, fun chair. It swivels, which is something that really interests me. I find that people are really much more comfortable in chairs that can move with them.”
