Combining traditional DEDON craftsmanship with fresh innovations in cushion technology, weave and material mix, the LOU lounge system takes outdoor lounging to a whole new level. Designed by Toan Nguyen, a master of modular systems, LOU was conceived from the ground up as a series of overlapping horizontal strata, with armrests defined by a subtle relief in the woven structure of the seat. Thanks to a semi-open weave and hidden gliders, the system gives an impression of extraordinary lightness, as if floating. And with the wide range of modules available, including a curved one for a special twist, it can be configured for any outdoor setting, however large or small.
DEDON and Nguyen researched heavily into foam materials to develop LOU’s easy-care, weather-resistant, reversible cushions. Impressively thin yet remarkably comfortable, they can quickly be picked up and carried inside in case of a sudden shower; during the off-season their compact size makes them a breeze to stack and store. Great care also went into LOU’s textile-like woven pattern, created from three different profiles of DEDON Fiber in three different shades of gray. This textile effect, together with the collection’s wide range of accessories—teak arm trays, a rich ceramic tabletop for the footstools, a solid teak top for coffee table, powder-coated stainless steel side tables—helps users to create sophisticated ‘total’ atmospheres for any outdoor living room.
