The Slack Folding Lounge Chair is a lightweight, compact interior/exterior chair intended for the hospitality and mid- to upper-range residential markets. It is designed to meet the dual needs of space efficiency and portability while maintaining a material palette that is at once elegant and durable. It’s structure is conceived in durable woods (eucalyptus or teak) and recycled composites. And for ultimate lightweight performance, high strength fibre composites are also being considered. The wonderful thing about Slack is the stretched textile seat, which doubles as a cover and carrying strap. The basic textile conforms to the shape of the frame of the chair giving the design its distinct form and gives some comfort. A second section of engineered textile through the centre of the chair gives a complete comfort and ergonomics not usually found in this class of chairs. When folded, the legs are hidden in between the seat and back profiles. The textile seat is temporarily detached then rewrapped to make the cover and carrier for the chair.
Slack is ready for further engineering and prototyping. See contact information below for further information.
