The Bombay Lounger is a tribute to the classic - the "Bombay Fornicator". The term was coined during the British Raj and describes the Bombay Fornicator as an Anglo-Indian term meaning a wicker chair with an extended footrest. Taking elements of classic tropical furniture, the goal was to create a new language bringing traditional materials and ideologies into the contemporary design space. Inspired by the traditional rattan chair, this collection is made of solid teak and stainless steel. The result is an elegant look that blends old with new.
The teak wood back rest can be locked into five positions, offering the user a range of profiles to sit or rest on. In its first mode, it becomes a 3 seater bench that can be used as a multipurpose piece of furniture. The slim teakwood sections reinforce the idea of minimalism and elegance.
The three panels of cane that make up the seat are woven into the teak frame using a classic cane pattern. It is lightweight, durable, and beautiful- highlighting the natural grain of the teakwood.
