Marea Lounge by Jules Sturgess
British designer Jules Sturgess has created the Marea Lounge. The piece seems to defy the laws of physics with a thickness of just four millimetres, achieved with the immense strength of the carbon construction.
Description of the Marea Lounge by Jules Sturgess:
“Marea is just four millimetres thick at its edge yet is immensely strong due to its all carbon construction. No conventional material has the strength to allow such a structure to take the stresses of use.
Built up of two totally separate carbon sections, anchored together at a critical strain point by the central titanium hub, its rakish profile is almost invisible when viewed from the side and takes the form of the chaise longue to a cantilevered extreme.
Despite its strength, enough flexure has been designed into the laminate to allow the piece to change shape slightly under load.”
