Designed by Scott Collins, the “UrbanLounge” is a simple but at the same time modern seating that presenting an effective form seems to redefine outdoor furniture. Departing from your typical outdoor lounge chair, the lounge by the Chicago-based designer uses a single piece of bent plywood, which fits into the natural surroundings and forms an ergonomically pleasing seat. The construction requires no fasteners and creates very little wasted material, which adds to the beauty in the simplicity of the form. The Urban Lounge features a simple though smart use of forms created from natural materials and produces a minimal aesthetic.
