Christophe Moinat Bone Chaise Lounge

The bone chaise lounge takes it name from the resemblance to a vertebrae found in the human back. In this piece the creator has fused minimalism and contemporary design. There is little extra to the chaise lounge, but the necessary elements highlighted by shape and form. This piece was designed by Christophe Moinat to be built in foam, leather, and fabric.
