Before & After: Costela Lounge Chair by Martin Eisler and Carlo Hauner
This lounge chair & ottoman took some investigation to find! And just based on the beautiful curve of the pressed wood, we should have realized it was a Brazilian design. Designed by Martin Eisler and Carlo Hauner in the mid to late 1950's, these pieces were made for Forma Brazil.
Not a lot of information is available online (that we found), but an image search did reveal many different interpretations of the cushion design. Our direction was based on our clients' preference, and we're pretty happy with the end result for this iconic, rare lounge chair. What do you think?
