AEO Lounge Chair

Paolo Deganello

AEO is a light, comfort­able lounge chair that can be taken apart, washed and reassem­bled. Featur­ing a grey lacquered steel frame and seat cushion with your choice of fabric or leather uphol­stery. Aeo’s design was one of the first decon­struc­tions of the modern armchair in 1973. The chair was born out of designer Paolo Deganello’s desire to create some­thing free from conven­tions with an unre­stricted exper­i­men­tal use of new mate­ri­als and possibilities.
