The Paris Exterior Lounge Chair is an iconic lounge chair designed in 1929 by Arne Jacobsen. The lounge chair is manufactured from weather-resistant materials and can be used outdoors all year round.
Jacobsen created the Paris chair in 1929 for a competition published by The Basket Makers Association. Later the same year Jacobsen won a Danish Architect’s Association competition for designing the famous “House of the Future” which was built in full scale for the Housing and Building Exhibition in Forum Copenhagen. The Paris chair also received attention at this project, as it was displayed as a part of the interior design. Until World War II, the chair was produced by Robert W. and known both as Fremtidens Stol (The Chair of the Future), Skovsneglen (The Forest Snail) and the Paris Chair.
The Paris Exterior Lounge Chair is hand-bent in Alu-Rattan and woven by hand with ArtFibre. Alu-Rattan is weather-resistant powder coated aluminium, and ArtFibre is Sika-Design’s own specially developed artificial fibres made of maintenance-free polyethylene. This makes the Paris chair resistant to both frosty weather, heavy rain, and UV-radiation. The chair requires no maintenance and is easy to clean.
Due to the strong materials, the Paris Exterior Lounge Chair is both suitable for private homes as well as for hospitality projects where the iconic chair fits perfectly in in the garden, on the patio and by the pool.
Cushions are sold separately.
