This was one of those projects where you aren't exactly sure where to start! Our client brought us these Gae Aulenti outdoor chair frames and wanted us to make new slings. And so, the research started!
Gae Aulenti (1927 - 2012) was an Italian architect, lighting, interior and industrial designer. She was known for many large-scale museum projects, including the Musee d'Orsay and Centre Pompidou in Paris. Her style was modest and minimal, believing people should be the focus of a room.
These lounge chairs incorporate a metal frame with a swingy, freestyle sling. They are supremely comfortable.
