Following the successful launch of the Tron range in 2021, Knightsbridge has collaborated with designer Bruce Kenneth once again, to develop the collection further with the addition of the Tron lounge chair.
As an experienced designer, Bruce Kenneth is well known for his appearances on popular television shows such as BBC’s Money For Nothing, Channel 4’s Mend It For Money and Channel 4’s The Great Garden Revolution. Working alongside Knightsbridge’s design and development team, the Tron range has expanded from the outdoor and upright models, to also include a lounge option.
Ideal for corporate, leisure and hotel markets, the chair features a striking silhouette, synonymous with the existing Tron collection, with a more relaxed frame and deep seat for ultimate comfort. Inspired by angles and motion, Tron is reminiscent of furniture from the 1950s and 1960s with a modern twist.
Jason Brown, Director of Design & Development at Knightsbridge Furniture, said: “Working with Bruce back in 2021 on the initial Tron designs was an absolute pleasure and really captured what Knightsbridge is all about – combining stylish designs with functionality. We’ve always admired Bruce’s unique style and knew the Tron would be a collection we’d love to develop further to explore the needs of the hospitality and hotelier markets. After a discussion, we decided the distinctive frame of the Tron would look amazing as a lounge chair, and so the Tron lounge chair was born.”
The Tron lounge chair is available in solid walnut, solid oak or stained beech and can be upholstered in any fabric. There’s also the option to add a matching footrest.
Commenting on the new design, Bruce said: “Knightsbridge’s expert craftsmanship is something that drew me in when looking to collaborate with a furniture manufacturer, and evolving the collection further is an amazing progression of our partnership. I set out to create something that although static, doesn’t appear stagnant, and takes you on a journey of movement as you look at the chair. We’ve captured this perfectly and can hopefully continue to develop it further to bring it to more sectors to enjoy too.”
With more than 80 years’ experience, Knightsbridge provides quality furniture from concept and design to manufacture and delivery to a number of industries including healthcare, care, challenging environments, hospitality and workplace.
