If you look closely at the architectural landscapes of Southern Utah, you will find appealing textures, colors and patterns. These characteristics are beautiful on the surface, but they are also beautiful because of their depth.
The design for the Strata Lounge Chair and Ottoman was inspired by the concept of forces gradually exposing the end-grain of much deeper laminations.
And just like the exposed layers of sandstone, the beauty is both in the topographical form, and also in the natural variations inherent in these layers.
Over millennia, small brooks, creeks, and rivers have eroded elaborate cross sections through epoch deep layers of rock to expose fine-grained layers of stratification and constantly changing landscapes.
The design of our furniture products is intended to echo these unique topographical forms.
The hand-made Strata Lounge Chair and Ottoman were designed for relaxing, but also to add unique sculptural qualities to a space.
Like all our modern furniture, Strata Lounge was designed, developed and tested over months of prototyping to ensure comfort, longevity, and style.
The lounge chair is constructed from dozens of individually shaped layers of birch. Each layer and each chair with its own unique natural characteristics.
The shapes of the laminations were developed though numerous iterations to address the natural contours of the human spine.
Ultimately, our furniture products are built to balance durability and timelessness. And over time in your household they will develop their own patinas and their own histories.
