swoop plywood lounge chair

Design Brian Kane, 2010
Tubular steel, molded plywood, upholstery
Made by Herman Miller®

During his time as an instructor at the California College of Art, industrial designer Brian Kane observed how people interacted with furniture in public spaces. He noticed that very few of them sat in what might be considered a traditional way. They perched on arms. They curled up. They sprawled out. This observation inspired a versatile and fluid design response, which became the Swoop family of lounge furniture.

Swoop was designed for the way people sit today. Because there are no hard edges or 90-degree angles, the "swooping" form created as the arms curve into the seat accommodates a variety of postures and positions. Sprawl along the curve of the plywood lounge chair, kick your feet up on an ottoman, or pull up a coordinating table. All components work together in countless ways to create flexible, reconfigurable spaces where people can get together casually and comfortably.

Swoop Plywood lounge chair features a 3/8" thick molded plywood shell with an upholstered seat, arms and back. legs are tubular steel and come with glides. With an extensive range of upholstery fabrics, veneers, laminates, and colors Swoop also suits your personal style. Combine tables and chairs for configurations that meet practically any need. Optional ottoman is also available.

Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with modern furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
