Ovis Lounge Chair is a minimalist design created by Ladies & Gentlemen in collaboration with textile artist Ashley Helvey. The design duo of Ladies & Gentlemen—Jean Lee and Dylan Davis—decided to create a vintage design that also encompassed a playful and contemporary aesthetic. A penchant for a simple and organic structure led to a conversation with Ashley Helvey, who happened to enjoy the same sensibilities.
The chair, which is essentially metal beams intersecting a wooden frame, can be customized further in the material of the beam and the fabric. The metal portion can be ordered in either brass or copper, and the fabric portion can be ordered in Navajo wool, natural untanned leather, or dark brown leather. However, its ostensible simplicity is only matched by its exquisite details, which include brass screws and a copper or brass dowel to keep the cushion in place which is made in the metal chosen for the frame.
Ladies & Gentlemen was founded in 2010 as a playful exploration in materials and functionality. Their products have a signature aesthetic that expresses their multidisciplinary approach towards design. Their current collection includes a diverse selection of products from jewelry and small accessories to furniture and lighting.
