Item details

As a part of the landscape upgrade to the Coburg Lake Park, Alli Coster, Landscape Architect for the City of Moreland wanted to introduce a number of outdoor single and double chaise lounges. Andrew was commissioned to design these seating elements and Furphy Foundry fabricated them. The key to the success of this design was the manufacture and testing of a full-scale prototype ensuring the ergonomics were just right to read a book, relax and enjoy the view of the lake surroundings.
