Tom Strala’s ‘Lazy Seefelder’ lounge chair is a divan bed that “exudes fashion and movement, an extraordinary object made for everyday life” says the Zurich-based designer.
The design of the Seefelder series (there’s also a ‘Seefelder’ and ‘Rocking Seefelder’) was a creative process that took three years to complete. “Various possibilities of the rattan as a technical and aesthetic material were explored and further developed, the goal being a relaxed modernity: defined forms for an easy-going use.” says Strala.
“With its unpretentious nature and the natural warmth of its rattan the Seefelder celebrates the poetry of the daily life while conveying the relaxed feeling of a holiday cottage. The Seefelder series is a manifest against the sterile and arduous design, whose vanity has forgotten the beauty and lust of life.”
