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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
As we explore The Art of Lounging, we seek out the best of the best. Today we look to our Design Hunters to identify the top chair models out. There are certainly some classics, but what’s your favourite?
