Postmodern chair Zyklus by Peter Maly is a post modern design easy chair with an ottoman/hocker. Designed by Peter Maly for Cor (Germany). All parts of this design are derived from a circle. You can easily move the chair, lifting the front part and rolling it to the place where you want it to be. The neck roll is in height adjustable. And the Ottoman can be used with the chair or as a stool. This postmodern Zyklus chair has a grey leather chair and hocker and the neck roll is leather in turquoise.

Postmodern design, which emerged in the late 20th century, represents a significant departure from the strict functionalism of modernism. It is characterized by its eclectic and often playful blend of historical references, styles, and materials. Postmodern designers sought to challenge the rigid rules of modernism and embraced a more diverse, whimsical, and often ironic approach to design. This movement encouraged the use of pastiche, where elements from different historical periods and cultural sources were combined to create unique and sometimes controversial designs. Key figures like Ettore Sottsass and the Memphis Group in the 1980s exemplified this movement with their bold and colorful creations. Postmodern design celebrates individualism, complexity, and a sense of irony, emphasizing the subjective experience of design over universal principles.
