Design duo Ivar Gestranius and Kevin Lahtinen designed this big, soft, cuddly lounge chair for LoOok Industries. The Bulldog chair takes after its namesake in that it is large and lovable, a little goofy looking, and ultimately the most noticeable thing in the room.
The colorful lounge chair is designed to be the ultimate in relaxation. Its low-slung, comma-shaped body and dramatically oversized arms swallow you up while you recline with a nice beverage during a long Netflix binge.
Although it’s reminiscent of kids’ furniture thanks to its soft lines and bright colors, the Bulldog is all about making a big visual impact. It pops no matter what surroundings it happens to be in. And if you’re not into neon, it does come in subtler hues, too, as well as leather upholstery.
More from the designers
“Bulldog is a big comfortable chair for cozy lounging. This soft little giant makes a statement in chill-out areas, lounges and other locations that need some spicing up. Lean back in this majestic creation with a drink in your hand and feel like royalty. Remember that sometimes, just sometimes, size matters.”
“Bulldog was originally called Bulldozer. That would probably have been a suitable name too. This is the biggest easy chair in our collection. Back in the days the idea was to make it even bigger, but we chickened out and settled for a more convenient size chair that would fit through most door openings. That was probably a good decision.”
About LoOok Industries
“Within the noise of data, a lot of players in the industry lost their own voice. By simply relying to numbers, many forgot to listen to their gut. While consumers are constantly looking for something different, even innovators lack the courage to break the norm. We say: screw that. In an industry where money dictates what gets to be made, we make what we want. We don’t follow rules, we follow the inspiration – whether it comes during a design meeting or on a sauna bench. Because we are not furniture makers, we are storytellers. We’re here to harness the power of storytelling into a still object. In addition to having a purpose, our products have a personality.”
