Crosshatch Chair and Ottoman

Using a minimum of materials in a maximally inventive way, the Crosshatch Chair and Ottoman employ both handcraft and technology to achieve alluringly refined results. Designed by EOOS, the Vienna-based studio that has received more than 70 international awards, including the coveted Italian Compasso d’Oro, the Crosshatch Chair is lightweight and transparent, extremely easy to pull up for a desk-side chat, or, when paired with the ottoman, to relax around a cocktail table.

Parachute cords, a common industrial product, are an integral part of the chair’s design. Pulled down, the cords create a system of internal tension and supply the necessary back support, creating the feeling of being enclosed in a comforting, protective nest. The parachute cord is available in several colors, the frame in a selection of natural woods. Because of their simple, classic profiles, the Crosshatch Chair and Ottoman can work in a broad range of environments, from an executive office or a reception area to a penthouse or suburban living room.
