Pearson Lloyd unveiled Turtle, a range of chairs for German furniture manufacturer Walter Knoll, at last week’s Orgatec furniture fair in Cologne. Designed for both the contract and domestic market, Turtle features an outer shell that forms a cup around the upholstered form, which aims to highlight the exterior shape of the chair. Turtle is available in a 3D fabric or leather, in a choice of colours. Further models will be launched at the IMM Fair in January 2005 and the Milan Furniture Fair in April. Orgatec featured a range of new models, including office chairs by Martin Ballendat for manufacturers including Dauphin, and work by Niels Diffrient for Humanscale.
