Crescent Lounge by Brooklyn based Vonnegut-Kraft - contemporary technological manufacturing and a tradition of handmade craftsmanship

Crescent Lounge is designed by Vonnegut/Kraft. The design studio was founded in New York City in 2011 by Katrina Vonnegut and Brian Kraft. Working in Sunset Park, Brooklyn studio/workshop, they design and produce furniture, lighting, textiles and custom projects for a wide range of applications and clientele. Kraft and Vonnegut harmoniously combines and maintain a balance between contemporary technological manufacturing and a tradition of handmade craftsmanship.

Crescent Lounge is carefully composed of half round ash stock resolved into a series of balanced joints. The ash frame holds the mattress in place while the crescent headrest rises above to give the piece its distinctive profile.
