Satvic Lounge / Lounge Chair

Satvic Lounge
Satvic Lounge

The Satvic Lounge gets its name from the Hindu belief of the four ages. The materials for the design represent a Satvic beings character. The raw wooden base holds the pure polycarbonate seat. The wood here represents the earthly abode. Its where the pure being can acknowledge its own existence. The pure soul is represented by the seat on the wooden base showing its earthly bonds while still maintaing the true pure crystalline form. We the common folk, call beings that have achieved this state of conscientiousness “enlightened beings.” They guide and encourage us through teachings, to achieve this beautiful and evolved state of existence.
