The Air-Liner range grew out of a simple brief from Tait to designer Adam Goodrum to create an outdoor sunlounge from metal – a material the company predominantly works in.
Currently consisting of the Rec-Liner and Sun-Liner, the range is produced in sheet metal, creating a simple, clean aesthetic.
“I really love [American sculptor] Alexander Calder’s work,” Goodrum explains. “He did a lot of big, strong metal pieces,
public art and mobiles. Just really nice shapes with splashes of colour,
and I’ve always been an admirer of his sheet metal sculptures, so I
definitely got a bit of inspiration from him.”
Adam has added his own splashes of colour to the Air-Liner collection,
with the side-table on the Sun-Liner and arms of the Rec-Liner accented
with vibrant fun colour.
The material provided the designer with a unique opportunity to create a
light architectural aesthetic.
“Sheet Aluminium is such a versatile
material. It provided enough strength for the cantilevers while also
allowing a touch of flex for comfort. When placed outside I like the way
the flat planes of the folded sheet reflect the different tones of
Air-Liner also has an optional cushion for further comfort.
