A Lounge Chair

A Lounge Chair

Fall 2016

A lounge chair is often a luxury piece of furniture because of the amount of space it takes up in a room. For this reason, Althea Fyfe and I set out to create a lounge chair that can fold up and be stored easily when not in use. We developed this product as a design opportunity for HAY, a Denmark design firm.


Brand Presentation

It can stand upright to offer multiple ways of storage.

It also offers two ways of sitting to accommodate flexibility.
