‘juno’ by james irvine for arper


james irvine has conceived ‘juno’, a plastic chair cast produced through a single gas assisted injection mould for italian furniture manufacturer arper. consisting of clean fluid lines, it has a light profile expressed through its silhouette and light weight. the british designer wanted to give the seating object a more slender appearance which is particularly evident on the outter leg of the chair which is only 8 mm thick, slowly increasing towards the centre of the furniture piece. created both for indoors and outdoors, it can be used in residential and commercial spaces. it is available in four different forms: solid back and open back, both either with or without arm rests; and the seat and back rest portions of the chair can also be finished in upholstered pads. ‘juno’ comes in five different colors: white, sand, anthracite, orange and yellow. all of the variations are stackable, to accommodate large-scale use and storage.
