Herman Miller Crosshatch™ Lounge and Ottoman
EOOS for Geiger, 2013
Using a minimum of materials in a maximally inventive way, the Crosshatch Chair employs 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, Crosshatch is lightweight and transparent, extremely easy to pull up for a desk-side chat or to relax around a cocktail table. The parachute cord is available in several colors, the frame in a selection of natural woods.
Parachute cords, a common industrial product, are an integral part of its 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. Because of its simple, classic profile, the Crosshatch Chair can work in a broad range of environments, from an executive office or a reception area to a Manhattan penthouse or suburban living room.
