loungeAway / Lounge Chair


The alterable lounge-seat «loungeAway» is immune to problems of storing space.
As it is milled out of a block of honeycomb paper it can be extended to different shapes, and then be folded up and stored away in minimal space.
It’s complex shape was chosen to satisfy, from an esthetical point of view, in every position, be it as chaise longue or as long bench, straight or in curves.
Two symmetrical designs allow to combine several chaise longues or benches to an ensemble.
«loungeAway» comes in two versions: one single colored, the other in two contrasting paper colors, in order to obtain varying color gradients from different points of view.
