Luso Lounger by James Uren

The Luso Lounger by James Uren is the young designer’s modern reinterpretation of the Chaise Longue Company‘s classic lounger. Re-inventing it to suit the way in which we live today, Uren adds a footstool which helps use the lounger in a number of ways (a day bed, lounger, chair, footstool), while Luso’s unusual asymmetric form helps make better use of space.

James Uren is a young designer, who studied contemporary furniture and product design at Bucks New University and has just graduated with First Class Honours. He’s also a runner up of Business Design Center New Designer of the Year award.

Prop-er Benches by Oscar Medley-Whitfield

Kingston University graduate Oscar Medley-Whitfield presented these benches that rely on each other for support at New Designers in London last week (6-9 July).

The Prop-er Benches each have one shortened pair of legs so they need to rest on the surface below. They can be arranged freely, providing three surfaces at chair height, table height and shelf height.
