Triple Duty

The innovative upholstery Jeff Jenkins developed for the Meta Chair—a runner-up in the 2004 Metropolis Next Generation Design Competition—reappears in a new chaise longue, Isola, which was short-listed in De Padova and Designboom’s Premio Vico Magis­tretti contest last year. Potato-chip-thin but still ergonomic, the upholstery works perfectly for Isola’s triple function as lounge, stool, and desk. “You have this expressive object, and at the same time you have a very rational idea about comfortable seating,” Jenkins says.
