Monna by Max Lipsey

Monna is a new prototype by Max Lipsey for a comforting, feminine easy armchair or lounge chair.

The name Monna comes from an abbreviation of the Italian, Ma Donna or my lady. The chair is inspired by prehistoric Venus figurines of voluptuous women, thought to be representations of a mother goddess. The soft, round curves are reminiscent of these figurines, suggesting feminine nurturing and bounty, for a safe and welcoming place to curl up into.
