After earning a degree in furniture design from Leeds Metropolitan University in England, Marc Krusin
moved to Milan to launch his career. He cofounded the design group Codice 31 and has collaborated with
Piero Lissoni, Kartell, Flos and Knoll. In 2008, the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban
Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design included Krusin in “Europe
40 under 40,” an annual list of the most promising and emerging design talent in Europe. Seeing a need
for simple and sophisticated guest seating and occasional tables, he created his Krusin Lounge Armchair
(2011) with woven paper rush seat. The strong geometry of this piece is softened with radius and chamfer
details. Suitable for contract use. Made in U.S.A.
Ash, oak, walnut or ebonized oak frame; mortise-and-tenon construction; steam-bent top rail; woven natural paper seat.
