About Aura Living
CV Aura Living is an Indonesian company and it seems its website is out of order, but from the new and excellent M&O platform MOM (Mason et Object and More) you can get some background info on the company.
The Boogaloo Lazy Chair is handmade and the blocked cover consists of patched lighter and darker leather blocks.
HYBRID is the “animalistic” collection by Merve Kahraman where a chair unites with its owner, merging into one. Hybrid No1 is an armchair with horns – it’s handmade and available in different types and colors of leather.
Merve Kahraman (born in 1987) studied Interior Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design(Milan/Italy) before moving to London. Since graduating, she has worked in several architecture and design studios in Istanbul, New York and London. Her decision to specialize in industrial design stems from her desire to include furniture and products as an integral part of her designs for spaces. Currently, she is continuing her masters education in Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (London/UK) and working on her own industrial design projects.
Early Westport Chair
Found this photo of an early Westport Chair somewhere on the web. Also found DIY instuctions at This Old House‘s site, maybe to peruse myself.
The Westport Chair was first built by Thomas Lee of Westport, New York, for his family home, but it was Harry Bunnell who patented the design 5 years after Thomas built it and produced it until the 1930ies.
