Mr. Lazy

The recliner, or Lazy Boy, very quickly entered the unconscious of the American collective culture, and therefore, years later, in the upper and upper middle class culture of Mexican and Latin American society. Gradually acquired cultural values related to leisure and rest, more in a sense of comfort than in a search for well-being, and started reflecting the most ordinary side of casual pop culture. I think that all this pop-cultural value was the main reason why I was drawn to the idea of designing a contemporary recliner that dialogues with the configurative and aesthetic resources that gave rise to their ancestors, but with a different and balanced vision, trying to pay a kind of tribute.
