Designer Martin Ballendat and Dauphin Home have followed up their award-winning Perillo Lounge Chair Collection with a smaller, svelter, and, by some accounts, more charming incarnation: Little Perillo, "similarly sculptural, but more compact, achieving the same inimitable organic and emotional lines."
Little Perillo is a Versatile, Whimsical Addition to the Perillo Line
Little Perillo is indeed evocative. Ballendat's innovative design seems to have been modeled on the asynchronous flutterings of a thick ribbon in the wind, or the sexy, streamlined silhouette of a pair of curvy hips. Seat and back are one continuous piece, created from a swooping swath of flexible plastic.
The design makes Little Perillo both seamless and exuberant-perfectly contained yet unabashed in its sensuality. Further, the single-piece construction deeds durability and versatility-making it right at home in a wide range of venues, including residential, office, hospitality, and virtually any outdoor space.
Options for Little Perillo include legs in powder-coated aluminum or wood. Various colors are available for the seat and back. Dauphin Home also offers a version in beech wood-as comely and curvaceous as the bentwood work of Hans Wegner or the Eames.
