Nathalie Karg's Cumulus Studios, known for it's collaborations with contemporary artists to create functional outdoor objects (blog 8/26/09, 12/8/09, 12/22/10), is presenting their newest designs at Design Basel next month.
This collection is created by sculptor Mike Bouchet, who has taken the ultimate consumer object, a shopping cart, and altered it to create the ultimate leisure object ...... a sun lounger!!! Bending the front and back panels of the shopping cart backwards or forwards, cutting the sides off, and re-mounting the child's seat as a head rest has resulted in this wonderful "chaise sculpture." The zinc- plated steel chair also comes a weatherproof foam cushion upholstered in a print designed by the artist.
In addition, there are four other designs available, each intended to add a different level of comfort and functionality. They include the chaise lounge with an umbrella, an armless chaise, a double chaise or love seat, a side table, and one with a speaker attached to connect an iPod.
Cumulus Studios does it again ......
Mike Bouchet's "Argento Libra" is absolutely divine!!!!
