Back to the Drawing Board Chaise by Jonas and Lard Dressler 01

Tiny e-mail, huge inspiration! Thank you David Dick for pointing me to the twin Brothers Dressler site! I totally agree: their work swipes you off your feet!

Your e-mail made me decide to start with a separate page here with links to Blogs and sites of chair designers as more and more designers have their own blog which is a good thing! Stay tuned!

Back to the chair that David looooves:

I first saw this beautiful chair at Come Up To My Room Toronto 2008, and fell in love with it so completely it was hard for me to tear myself away. The hinges are reclaimed from a disused drafting table, hence the name. There are other chairs on this site, but this one is the standout in my mind.

As an aside: I have here in my office an old drawing board from my father that I now use as a table.

Corti├ža Chaise Longue by Daniel Michalik : TreeHugger

A tad old, but still up to date this cork chaise:

We’ve seen today’s entry from designer Daniel Michalik before, but it’s worthy of another look and certainly deserves to be included in any “best of” sustainable design list. Made from cork that originates as the waste material from the bottle stopper industry, Corti├ž├â┬ža showcases cork’s tremendous potential to perform in ways unlike any other material. Says Michalik, “I have discovered that when handled correctly, the natural flexibility of cork allows it to form fantastic, complex shapes no other material can match

The concept behind the creation of this chaise lounge was to take styling consistent with an early 20th Century European Roadster and give it a gesture suggesting that it has a life of its own.

We are currently taking deposits for a very limited edition run of the Living Lounge.
