It doesn’t take much and you would miss your plane if you wouldn’t have this information. Even so, it is amazing to see how many airports don’t include the required walking time to get to the gate.

‘Atlantique’ streched deckchair for public parks

A piece of furniture I’ve designed many years ago and still think it is an interesting take on the conventional deck chair for public use. I could see this new version well in a park or a managed public environment. Everybody who has had a nap in the deck chairs for rent in London’s Hyde Park knows it’s a winner. The ‘Atlantique’ has been on show in the group exhibition ‘Global Edit’ at the 2007 Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan organised by the magazine Wallpaper.
