Studioforma’s Clodette chair, designed by the company’s lead designer Alex Leuzinger comes from memories of childhood, precisely of a time in which everything around one appears humongous such as tables that were too high, chairs too big, sofas too low, and so on.
Clodette has been awarded a Prize Design for Modern Furniture + Lighting 2023 by Global Design News and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum for Architecture and Design as the Best Seating of the Year.
Through this vast amplitude, one feels encapsulated or rather protected and free.
Its oversized form aims to take its users back to a younger time when furniture felt just as big. It is made up of several segments that are placed together to form a sphere.
The front of the sphere is removed from these segments to make a seat, back, and armrests.
Clodette is upholstered in a soft, white fabric that complements the chair’s cloud-like form.
The soft appearance is additionally an allusion to when you would stare at the sky and the clouds seemed to have had the most incredible shapes, you started having the wildest, yet facile and carefree imaginations.
