Turkish design studio Autoban has a strange name. Their logo is the German sign for Motorway (Autobahn). However without the ‘h’ it could mean Ban the Car. Am curious whether it is on purpose. Anyway they have an ample portfolio of seating furniture among which this nest lounge chair. Another variation on the High Back Beach chair I’m a particular fan of.
Yess! Living in the Hague and near its beach resort Scheveningen sometimes makes me nostalgic. Wishing the Scheveningen high back beach chair back on the Scheveningen beaches. In the our category Beach Chair you’ll find some examples and some new designs that could replace the original ones. Thanks to Aubergine Color I’ve found evidence that a similar chair must have been en vogue in New England.
Browsing in the Flickr Commons I found this High Back Beach Chair photo dating from 1917. The High Back Beach Chair was common in Scheveningen from around the 1850ies until the 1960ies. The inside is clearly lined with a nice warm blanket. So the photo was not taken in high summer.
In my post Kaigan for Ahrend you can find more about this model.
