Dune Modern Outdoor Lounge Chairs

Modern Design dealer NOVA68 is proud to introduce the Red Dot Design Award winning Dune seating system; a modular outdoor furniture collection with a beautiful visually attractive free-flowing organic form. Dune was designed by Austrian designer Rainer Mutsch and is hand crafted & imported from Switzerland. Dune is made from fiber cement, a durable composite which is normally used in the construction industry, and is made from natural materials including cellulose fibers. Dune is perfect for modern landscape gardens, patios, courtyards, pool seating, luxury resorts, boutique hotels, public spaces, private resorts or when used as a museum bench.

Dune visualizes the present material-technical maximum parametres of the fibercement material.The result is a highly stable structure with a load-carrying capacity way over the demanded requirement profile for public spaces. The rainwater flows through a hole in the seating surface to the inside of the loop where it is led directly out of the furniture through the curved bottom surface to dry the furniture as fast as possible. Many prototypes and a lot of research were necessary in order to get the maximum stability out of three-dimensional shaped fiber cement; eventually, the geometry of the chair supports its stability through its controlled expansion and compression of the material which results in a load-capacity of around 1980 lbs (900kg) on the seating surface!

The shape of all the Dune elements allows the user to move the objects freely and to choose an individual seating position according to his or her individual taste. This flexibility guarantees at the one hand maximum comfort for the individual and on the other hand facilitates communication when the elements are arranged in a group. Since Dune has been designed as highly modular and indefinitely expandable system, it fits all spatial situations. Whether used indoors or outdoors, Dune is a sculptural of work of art cleverly disguised as outdoor furniture.
