The Tuxedo Ottoman is part of a collection of highly tailored lounge seating built on a series of simple base elements. Based on elegantly tall steel legs, Tuxedo’s underpinnings are nearly invisible.

“In my architecture, I strive to make buildings appear as light as possible,” says designer Craig Bassam of BassamFellows. “I pare back the unnecessary bulk and then express the structure in an honest and elegant way. I apply the same philosophy to furniture.”
