When Hong Kong-based design studio Lim + Lu saw Kvadrat Febrik’s crystalline Razzle Dazzle motif, they were reminded of monolithic icebergs grinding across one another as they float through the ocean. Inspired by this visual connection, the studio designed Berg, a chaise lounge whose stark form is softened through the use of textiles. The seat’s sculptural composition is designed to reflect what the studio saw as contradictions inherent within the formation of icebergs: monuments shaped by nature whose myriad forms nevertheless appear to have been chiselled out by hand.
