washington prism™ ottoman
Designed by David Adjaye as part of the Washington Collection for Knoll, the Prism lounge chair and ottoman use geometry and pattern to define form. The pieces are intended as sculptural or architectural objects that can be viewed from any angle. The lounge chair also has a swivel functionality, adding lightness to the piece. Each form consists of a color core laminate shell, available in red, white or black. This glossy finish contrasts with the texture of the fabric or leather on the chair and ottoman
David Adjaye OBE is recognized as one of the leading architects of his generation. Adjaye was born in Tanzania to Ghanaian parents and his influences range from contemporary art, music and science to African art forms and the civic life of cities. In 1994 he set up his first office, where his ingenious use of materials and his sculptural ability established him as an architect with an artist's sensibility and vision.
The Washington Prism ottoman is comprised of individually upholstered panels of urethane molded foam. Base is constructed of 3/4" Baltic Birch plywood panels covered in plastic color core laminate which maintains color throughout so vibrancy is maintained from edge to edge. The panels are assembled together using poplar wood corner blocks.
