With CIRQL, Werner Aisslinger draws on DEDON’s unique hand-weaving heritage. The output: an unmistakably fresh and new outdoor collection. Based on round, friendly shapes and a sophisticated geometric woven pattern, CIRQL manages to be both iconic and inviting. A pleasure to look at and to use. Made with luxurious DEDON Fiber, unrivaled for quality and strength, the collection is able to withstand even the harshest outdoor conditions.
In conceiving the collection, Aisslinger was inspired to develop an archetypal new shape. “When you design a chair,” he explains, “this is always the highest goal, to achieve a new archetype, not too complex, that creates a natural sense of connection, as if it had somehow always been around.” Further inspiration came from another Aisslinger project, a hotel set in a semicircular building from the 1950s.
True to its name, CIRQL is characterized by three concentric circles of powder-coated aluminum in the seat. The inner circles are completely suspended in woven fiber. In keeping with the theme, backrests practically encircle the user. An intricate geometric pattern, developed by Aisslinger with DEDON’s master weaver in the Philippines, radiates in every direction from the centermost circle. The collection includes lounge chair, dining chair (the latter with a choice of four-leg or circular base) and footstool. Optional seat and back cushions for the chairs complete the range.
From cutting-edge design concepts to iconic furniture, head-turning hotel interiors to innovative brand architecture, Berlin-based Werner Aisslinger has had an outsized impact on contemporary design. His award-winning work is included in the Selection Centre Pompidou. In addition to CIRQL, his first collection for DEDON, he has designed two recent stands for the brand at Salone del Mobile.
