On our last trip to Luminaire Miami, we were reminded of this bit of  superior design. This chair, Terminal 1, is definitely one of our favorite modern pieces.

Jean-Marie Massaud designed this lounge chair for B&B Italia in 2008 and immediately became an iconic piece for this notorious furniture label. It was shown at the 2008 Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. It’s elegant and fluid design serves dual function, as an arm chair and a chaise lounge. The clever combination of steel, hard polyurethane, and leather, results in a very inviting modern piece that can work well in different environments, as an accent pice in a more traditional setting, or as part of the composition when placed in a modern room.
