Lina Chair

Design Within Reach

Take a spin — An all-around beauty, the unexpectedly compact Lína Swivel Chair can rotate a full 360 degrees. Its gently curving profile envelops the user, while its tailored seams add a gentle textural pattern to its front, sides, and back.

An all-around pleasure

“I think ‘flow’ is a good word for it,” says designer Hlynur Atlason when asked to describe his Lína Swivel Chair (2018) in one word. “Because of the way the shapes come together as one, and how they play off each other.” Born in Iceland, Hlynur studied at Parsons in New York, where he continues to live today. From his SoHo office, he’s designed furniture, products, and packaging for Ercol, Stella Artois, Billie, L’Oréal, and, of course, Design Within Reach. The Lína Swivel Chair began with his desire to create a chair as one solid form. The result is both clean and complex, with no straight lines, and curves that are continuously changing trajectory. “It’s a sculpted shape that one can enjoy examining,” he says. Icelandic for “line,” Lína “embraces you with all the softness on the inside.” Made in Italy.
