The elegance of simple geometry – this in a nutshell forms the core design language of the Arc, an outdoor chaise longue created by Australian industrial designer Liam McFadyen. Comprising of two arcs of curved wood that cross each other in an opposite direction, the essence of the conception is defined by these voluptuous lines that intersect at two junctions. The unique bearing in fact, is inspired by the ‘Savonarola’ chair (also known as ‘X’ chair), an antediluvian furniture item even known in Ancient Egypt. And, it is this classy ‘pedigree’ that ultimately translates into an exquisite wooden structure exemplified by the adroit combination of balance, harmony and symmetry.
