Marea Lounge by Jules Sturgess

October 9, 2012

British designer Jules Sturgess has created the Marea Lounge.


Description from the designer

Marea is just four millimetres thick at its edge yet is immensely strong due to its all carbon construction. No conventional material has the strength to allow such a structure to take the stresses of use.

Built up of two totally separate carbon sections, anchored together at a critical strain point by the central titanium hub, its rakish profile is almost invisible when viewed from the side and takes the form of the chaise longue to a cantilevered extreme.

Despite its strength, enough flexure has been designed into the laminate to allow the piece to change shape slightly under load.
