Using engineering principals the design utilises critically stressed components to keep cross sections small allowing a light skeletal form. The hoop sections are designed to flex to give a soft feel, adapt to different body shapes, while supporting the whole of the body.
The chair is constructed using a mix of solid and laminated parts all joined with high quality stainless steel fixings to enhance the look and resist harsh environments.
The Birch ply version is specifically intended for indoor use, but the Oak version is equally at home indoors, by your pool, or in the garden.
In 2009 two ‘austen’ loungers were the focal point of the Gold Medal and Best in Show winning garden ‘The garden Lounge’ at Bloom in the Park which is Ireland’s premier garden show. Described as ‘Sinuous and sculptural’ by the Irish Times the loungers received wide media coverage in print and on TV.
