Ethimo - Grand Life outdoor collection


Architectural slopes define laid-back lounge chair


French designer Christophe Pillet has created an outdoor lounge chair with an architectural teak frame filled with rope mesh for Italian brand Ethimo.


The solid wooden frame draws a strong outline around the deep-seated lounge chair, with softer sections of woven rope mesh covering the back and sides. A wide upholstered cushion makes a ledge that runs around inside of the teak frame and the armrests slope off at an angle into the deep, cushioned seat. The seat extends past the arms and is low to the ground on four short legs, encouraging you to lounge back and put your feet up.

The collection is called Grand Life and also includes a sofa and armchair. They both have the same structure as the lounge chair, while the armchair has a higher back for a more structured seat.
