We’re not suggesting you invite your employees to don polka dot Speedos or bikini on the office terrace, but adding some fun outdoor furniture to the rooftop will blow new life into lethargic, overheating employees. So invite them to dust off those wide-brimmed hats and make their way onto the newly re-furnished rooftop where they can have impromptu meetings or soak up some Vitamin D over lunch time. To help you on your way, we’ve put together some of our favourite outdoor pieces:
With this one, it’s all in the name. A rocking (in both senses of the word) chaise lounge that’s ideal for soaking up the sun on a rooftop garden or on a patio. The solid structure supporting Body Raft Rocking Chaise Lounge is designed with bent fillets in solid natural beech wood – rocking from side to side you’re immediately transported to a sandy beach.
Straw Table L35 is a uniquely designed three-legged all-steel table. What makes Straw so different is the way the tubular steel has been shaped. Instead of conventional tubular steel forms created by soft curves, Osko + Deichmann have kinked the steel – the most direct and dramatic way of shaping a tube.
Not just for old souls and pipe smokers… The Rocker, designed back in 1948, became a very desirable piece of outdoor (and indoor) furniture. The Rocker comes with a websprung removable seat, optional back cushion and hardwood armrests making it the ideal piece of outdoor furniture.
You’d be forgiven for thinking this is a sculpture, but the MVS Chaise, designed by Maarten Van Severen, might be one of the most comfortable things you’ve ever sat on. The soft, elastic upholstery fits the body’s contours, making it an extremely comfortable recliner while the frame construction makes it easy to shift from a sitting to a lying position.
Reminiscent of the wire garden chairs of old, these chairs a strong structure and a soft aesthetic. Add to the mix a choice of finishes and the option of upholstered pads and you’ve got the makings a chair fit for summer.
