UK, London. Furniture design studio Gosling has revealed a new addition to its carbon fibre Marine Collection, which was launched in October 2013 and presented at this year’s SuperyachtDESIGN Week. The latest piece is a dining chair based on its lounge chair design.
The decision to expand the collection came from interest expressed by delegates at the SuperyachtDESIGN Week, which Gosling attended. “It is very exciting to have had such a positive reaction to our debut collection,” says designer and director at Gosling, Phil Sturdy. “The lounge chair has proved exceptionally popular and we are responding to client feedback and adding a dining chair.”
While the lounge and dining chairs look similar and will be constructed from carbon fibre with teak inlay, the latest piece has been raised in height and the arms brought in for a more comfortable dining experience. When not in use, the chair can be folded away neatly with six stowed chairs taking no more than 800mm in width.
“The original and unique features will still remain,” says Sturdy. “The new dining chair is lightweight, cool to touch, fold away and just as easy to transport. The redesign focuses on sailing yachts where space is at a premium.”
The announcement also sees small detail alterations to the art deco inspired tub chair, which works in harmony with the rest of the range including the new dining chair.
