Werner Aisslinger Designs a Well-Rounded Outdoor Collection for Dedon
The difficulty with designing a chair is conceiving a shape that is new yet also feels “as if it has somehow always been around,” Studio Aisslinger founder and owner Werner Aisslinger says. Inspiration for his first line for Dedon came from an earlier project of his, the 25Hours Hotel the Circle in Cologne, Germany, its namesake—and familiar—shape a motif throughout. His Cirql lounge and dining chairs and side table further the conceit: Chair backs, seats, and tabletop are rounded, the manufacturer’s proprietary fiber woven through the aluminum frames in a crosshatch pattern. There are four powder-coat colors available as well as optional seat cushions.
