Circular armrests dramatically inclined to hold the round back above the larger circular seat. The Orbit Chair suggests a moon in orbit. The armrests arc down in a graceful trajectory to meet the front legs, enhancing the chair’s lines.
The Orbit Chair created by Bohinc Studio is now available with outdoor specifics and can be left outside all year round, even in winter. The frame is made from powder-coated stainless steel to protect it from rust.
The upholstery is engineered so rainwater can simply drip through the seat and Dedar fabric is fabricated to be dew and mould-resistant. The Orbit Chair is also available without the circular armrest for table seating.
Handmade in Portugal, the Outdoor Orbit Chair is part of the collection in which Lara Bohinc develops her stellar themes, finding inspiration in planetary and lunar orbits, whose gravitationally curved trajectories drive the lines and shapes of the chairs. Constructed from thin square rods, the chairs are elegant, minimal, and delicate. Each piece of furniture is individually numbered and comes with a signed Certificate of authenticity to prove that it is Bohinc Studio original.
Like all Bohinc Studio’s creations, Orbit Chair is the result of the work of small artisanal workshops in Italy and Portugal, where the teams are treated fairly and respectfully, and using only responsible production practices.
Bohinc Studio works to commission with galleries and interior designers. After a decade-long stint with Cartier, exploring sculpture through jewelry, Lara Bohinc embarked upon creating functional pieces for living. Finding the larger medium so compelling, upon working on private commissions Bohinc launched her own studio in 2016 to dedicate her practice to object and furniture design.
Today, Bohinc Studio produces its own line of objects and furniture, does residencies with local craftsmen, and collaborates with selected brands. In the past, the studio has collaborated with Roll&Hill, Kasthall, Skultuna, and Lapicida and it has shown its own collection at Milan, London Design Weeks, and Design Miami, as well as at PAD, Salon, and Nomad with Gallery Fumi.
