Low Lotus Chair - Upholstered Seat
*****SHIPS IN 8-12 WEEKS*****
Design René Holten, 2008
Made in The Netherlands by Artifort
Sleek, smooth and functional is an apt description of René Holten’s Low Lotus. Made from Cristalplant, a composite material that’s snowwhite, a hard as marble, soft to the touch and easy to clean. The design of the Low Lotus stretches the frontiers of this material to its limits. The way in which the moulded tablet flows into the shell is only possible with this sort of composite material. The central stainless steel base with its four slim legs emphasises the sloping shape of the shell.
Holten (born in 1961) is a graduate of institutions including the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design and the Design Academy Eindhoven. He has worked for the Dutch architect Wiel Arets as an architectural designer, and for Artifort as the head of product development (1993-1998). He designed the DoDo in 1997, his first design for Artifort, which immediately won the prize for best Dutch Furniture Design 1998. Some of his other designs, such as Libel (2002) and Lotus & Low Lotus (2008) have also won prizes, receiving the award for Good Industrial Design. With his design studio named after himself, René Holten focuses on the furniture and bathroom fittings industries. Besides Artifort, his clients include Pullman (beds), Mosa (tiles), and Clou (bathroom fittings).
