Blau Singular Lounge Chair

When we build in the Mediterranean, we ensure continuity between indoor and outdoor spaces, through our use of light and construction materials, but we also like to see how in faraway places, such as Russia, different climate conditions impact design considerations with respect to Mediterranean parameters.

These are the words by Minimalissimo favourite Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, who recently designed the elegant Blau Singular Lounge Chair for the Spanish outdoor furniture company Gandia Blasco. It’s made with powder coated aluminium profiles—as few as possible—and powder coated aluminium micro-perforated sheet, with removable seat covers available in a range of finishes and colours.

This lounge chair is part of Blau outdoor furniture collection and for me, the most striking feature to this design is its excellent mix between lightness and simplicity, with the dynamism and even aggressive angles created by the hind legs, complimented by the excellent technical development where all joins are hidden for a sleek and seamless finish.
