Habitus Loves…. Lounging with the Classics

Looking at the Art of Lounging comes in many shapes and forms, but we cannot forget the classics – new or old, these are the lounges that last a lifetime. Here are some of our current favourites.

Built For Bears

In Bear House, size matters. Designed for Be@rbrick collectors, the house centres itself around the owners’ Be@rbricks display cabinet and scale is based on the toys, rather than the owners.

6 Built-In Lounges

Getting creative with a small space, creating nooks to nestle in, or embracing a tricky site are all reasons for creating lounges that dip down, up or push back into a wall. Today we look at a handful of these creative spaces.

Habitus Loves… Getting Low to Lounge

There’s something especially relaxing about sitting near – even on – the ground. It suggests a sense of casualness – when we’re perching, lying down, or sitting cross-legged, we tend to be in a relaxed frame of mind. So here we’ve picked out a range of low seating ideas that bring us close to the earth.

In Honour of the Chair

The chair is by far one of the most significant pieces of furniture aside from the table and the cabinet. ChristelH’s “P” series explores this historically rich piece of furniture.

(Team) Building on the Island

In Habitus issue 26, we look at John Wardle Architects’ tree-planting project ‘Waterview’. This year, the team-building retreat was slightly different and they built four structures along the coastal edge on Bruny Island.

Sarcastic Seating

In 56th Studio’s collection ‘Caricature as Furniture’, we see a different kind of seat. These chairs are communicative, exploring Pop and Hollywood culture through a graphic style inspired by caricature.

7 Design Hunters’ Favourite Chairs
