Treta Lounge / Lounge Chair

Treta Lounge
Treta Lounge

The Treta Lounge chair is an expression of the Treta Age in Hindu philosophy. Its nature represents man’s ability to use the subtle energies in the universe. The rocking chaise lounge chair is an allegorical manifestation of a human beings state in this age. The polycarbonate seat represents man’s soul. The frame of the chair represents the existence of the soul on the physical plane. The two finishes available for the metal frame of the design represent man’s dualistic nature. Divided in the soul and the ego, the Treta-being has achieved wisdom, yet has not dissolved his ego,so remains within the dualistic nature of the physical plane.
