Luno Press Release

PRODUCT NAME: Luno
DESIGNER: EOOS
PRODUCT CATEGORY: Lounge Chair
INTRODUCTION DATE: June 12, 2017

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The large scale, visually-striking lounge chair, Luno, was designed by, Austrian trio, EOOS. Its hard, precise outer shell and soft, inviting, wide seat are designed to allow for a variety of postures -- allowing the user to sink-in and find the most comfortable position for their needs.

“We believe movement and incorporating various postures is important for concentration and communication,” says Gernot Bohmann of EOOS. “Movement can speak as loudly as our words. We lean back when feeling relaxed, or lean in to show interest. One might curl up tightly or fidget when they feel overwhelmed or stressed.”

The commanding form and style of Luno is a by-product of the unique design process employed. Rather than starting with the desired three dimensional object, the chair was created using only two-dimensional cut pieces. These two-dimensional patterns were then folded together to create volume and shape from tension. The end result is a seamless balance of lines, weight and form.

“The surfaces have all straight lines and curved lines at the same time. It creates a balance between rational and emotional aspects,” explains Martin Bergmann of EOOS.

“It’s sophisticated and charming; it’s both provoking and inviting,” says Keilhauer President, Mike Keilhauer. “Luno captivates your attention.”

Luno chairs are fully upholsterable in any Keilhauer textiles, COL or COM. The outside back shell and cushioned interiors can be upholstered in different materials. Models include a high back or low back version offered on a 4-star base in aluminum or ash-hardwood.
