ZION’s design concept:
A sophisticated leisure lounge seat inspired by coral life and oceanic form; the tessellation design mirrors, imitates the multi-axial structure of oceanic rocks through geodesic design language. Geometric surfaces are made of multiple triangles that create the engulfing feeling of the lounge’s shell, achieving steadiness and serenity for the embodiment of the user.
