Dima Loginoff is not shy about expressing sensuality in his
designs, thankfully so. Indulgence may be the most sensual of his works yet. Unlike
chair designs that easily satisfy the eye but not the body, Indulgence is not
just visually appealing with its robust, Rubenesque, fluid hollows and curvaceous
peaks; Indulgence is viscerally satisfying. It calls on you to sit and indulge.
Past inspirations are at play here; Loginoff’s flowing
one-piece textile, a flower blossoming, its petals, shaded on the undersides, opening in their own
But the structure of the chair is not unrestrained. In fact, very purposefully, Loginoff employs
a rarely used cantilever* architecture, a seat that is separate from the base
of the chair. The first impact of one’s
weight is on the seat, and the second impact is absorbed, if necessary, by the
base of the chair. This split chair/base cantilever adds balance and stability
to the chair, and greater comfort as well.
Indulgence, in polycarbonate or clear ABS plastic, has a sumptuous
look and would have a highly polished, smooth, sensual feel. The unique cantilever architecture adds
significant sustainability to Indulgence as well.
* Cantilever chairs have no back legs which presents a design challenge for achieving balance and stability.
