28 Jun Chair of the Month – June
This intricate and compelling chair, called The Nido was constructed by Estudio Persona. The inspiring design team behind the Nido is Emiliana Gonzalez, an industrial designer, and Jessie Young, a conceptual artist. Commissioned to design a high-profile actress’s home, this duo came together to launch Estudio Persona. Their furniture combines contrasting shapes and volumes, hard geometric lines and soft natural materials. The shape of this modern lounge chair is inspired by its rounded seat, “Nido,” meaning “nest” in Spanish. The shape of this chair evokes the image of a delicate egg being perfectly cradled in its seat.
This chair perfectly combines dynamic design and stability. Each original work of art takes approximately 11-12 weeks to make and is locally sourced in the LA area. The Nido is a minimalist chair composed of a juxtaposition of shapes. This particular seat is made of reclaimed white oak and cognac upholstered leather, but the Nido comes in a variety of shades. You can choose from cognac, natural, blush, and black leather for the top portion, and pair it with white or stained oak. If you are looking for a sleeker more modern look you may opt for the all black version.
The simplistic shape is composed of clean lines and muted colors. It features two main pieces: the cylindrical seat and the T shaped base. The wood used for the base is so incredible and can be found in California forests. Gonzalez and Young were inspired by both the walnut tree and white oak, both materials organically create a solid foundation. The egg-shaped seat perfectly forms to your back and provides a very comfortable resting place.
We love this chair because of its unconventional shape and luxurious materials. The buttery cognac leather encourages you to settle in and relax. And, ergonomically, you will feel fully supported in the shape of this seat. The versatility behind this chair is also another huge plus! Since it comes in many different hues, you can mix and match between colors and woods making it perfect for any design style. Check out where to purchase this beauty on Estudio Persona.
