Design by Karim Rashid, 2010.
Made in Spain by VONDOM.
Capturing the graceful waves of the sea through the fluid, undulating contour of its seat and footrest, the Surf Sun Chaise LED emanates a sense of calm and carefreeness. The striking organic silhouette shows off a play of lights and shadows on the surface, highlighting the lounger's avant-garde look. Night events and low-lit environments will come to life when the color-changing internal light of this sunbed is turned on. The incorporated lighting feature uses a color changing LED light with intensity regulator and a remote control. In contrast to its durable and weather-resilient polyethylene resin body, the Surf Sun Chaise LED is extremely comfortable to recline on and is lighter than it looks.
Surf is a recipient of the coveted 2010 Best of Year award presented by US Interior Design magazine.

Formed in 2010, Vondom is already making waves in the world of modern outdoor furniture design and manufacturing. Apart from a premium selection of avant-garde outdoor tables, chairs, chaise lounges and stools, the company also offers accessories and decorative potsóbringing contemporary elegance to alfresco and indoor spaces.
The architectural grandeur of each Vondom invention is an aesthetic manifestation of the companyís passion for design and Mediterranean style. Renowned architects lead the development of Vondomís original designs, which feature eye-catching art-gallery silhouettes ranging from familiar to peculiar without sacrificing full functionality. In their collections youíll find sleek tables, some of which double as storage, and seats that resemble sculptural masterpieces but are surprisingly comfortable. For added practicality, some Vondom planters incorporate a self-watering system and many of their furniture pieces have an internal lamp or LED lighting, making them lights themselves. With a comprehensive range of products and color options, thereís a Vondom for every style conscious user.
To maintain their superior standard for artistry and quality, all Vondom pieces are made in Valencia, Spain using an ecological material called polyethylene, which is highly weatherproof and hardwearing. The creativity goes beyond the product itself and extends to the deployment of cutting-edge machinery, such as advanced roto-molding technology. Shaping polyethylene into sophisticated contours through this green manufacturing process is a near impossible feat, resulting in the production of highly exclusive products.
While an excellent choice for enriching the ambiance of homes, Vondom is also making a statement in elite venues, exclusive events, and five-star hotels. Thus, itís no surprise that Vondom is often seen in online and print publications while drawing admiring glances at international fairs.View other products from Vondom
