Moai Lounge Chair
Is a design from Philip Bro Ludvigsen of 2016 for Softline DK.
Philip Bro Ludvigsen was born in Australia in 1962 and educated at the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design.
He founded his own design studio in Copenhagen and in his short career, he has already designed an impressive number of products and projects ranging from suburban trains to candlesticks.
Did I ever feature Softline? (Just checking Softline in my site search? see right column top): The answer is “No” the Softline that comes up is an Italian factory and this Softline is a Danish company. Hence the addition DK by me.
Originally Sofline was established as the furniture division of K.Balling-Engelsen a/s in 1979. The company was producing polyurethane foam for the Nordic furniture industry. Softline was created to make functional furniture for the modern lifestyle, using the foam.
