A Lounge Chair Inspired by a Cocktail

May 22, 2013

Inspired by the Acapulco chair (named after the Mexican beach town of the same name), Mexican designers Léon Léon update this classic chair from the 1950s.

Spotted first on Poppytalk: By mixing handcraft with artistic techniques, Léon Léon founders Oscar Mora and Pauline Dornic have come up with three new designs based on the original. With thirteen different colors, the combinations are endless; not to mention delectable (just like the drinks after which they are named).
