Gallery: Lawnge Chairs: Grassy Green Park Lounges in the Netherlands

 

While most of us are delighted by the idea of bringing the outdoors in, we are equally excited by the concept of bringing the indoors outside! These “lawnge chairs” get the job done. Designed by artist Lisette Spee in collaboration with architect Tim Van Den Burg, the playful seats are part of a series of lounge chairs created for public spaces in Valkenberg Park in Breda, Netherlands.

Even though we think these chairs, which are made from metal and covered in artificial grass are fun to look at and sit in, we wish they incorporated more natural elements. After all there are several comfy designs for literal lawn chairs out there that incorporate natural, living materials. That said, we love that Lisette and Tim’s chairs appear to be seamless extensions of the green grass beneath. The great outdoors is a great place hang in the summer heat, and this interactive art installation brings a bit of culture to a lazy afternoon.

    I love the artificial grass being used for the lounge seating. The artificial grass being used for the seating would not get your clothes stained because it is not natural grass. Plus artificial grass is fairly comfortable and it feels just like natural grass. Thanks for sharing this cool invention!
