Cane Time: The Classic Deck Chair – Upgraded
Cane Time brings us the outdoor luxury of Dedon with Seax and SeaYou – a growing family of folding chairs.
SeaYou by Jean-Marie Massaud for Dedon raises the classic deck chair to a new standard of comfort, elegance and modernity. A stand-alone cousin to Massaud’s iconic Seax collection, SeaYou complements the entire Dedon portolio, bringing eclectic charm to any outdoor furniture arrangement. Generously oversized, SeaYou offers luxurious roominess in three different seating positions. An integrated headrest cushion, connected by zipper and easily detached for washing, takes this innovative deck chair to a new level of comfort. And a frame of slow-growth premium teak, reinforced by hidden stainless steel inserts and an aluminum axle, gives it unprecedented strength, stability and folding precision. What Jean-Marie Massaud says about it: “Starting with the basic deck chair typology, we went for comfort in the cushions, refinement in the mechanism and elegance in the profile,” says Massaud. “Of course it is functional, but you can also use it to create a more interesting outdoor furniture landscape. Combine SeaYou with a Dedon lounging system for a look that’s modern, elegant and eclectic — it’s all about mixing and matching.” Sometimes called a ‘transat’ for its regular presence aboard transatlantic oceanliners, the folding deck chair dates back to the 19th Century. Inspired by the simplicity and practicality of this classic typology, Massaud wanted to “upgrade” it for our own times. His focus was on comfort and refinement, and the results manage to set SeaYou apart without sacrificing the basic character of the deck chair. Jean-Marie Massaud is well-known for balancing comfort and elegance, zeitgeist and heritage, generosity and distinction, to create timeless design. His work includes influential products, furniture and store designs as well as one of the world’s most innovative football stadiums. SeaYou, his latest design for Dedon, joins such award-winning collections as DEAN, TIGMI, SLIMLINE and SEAX. You can shop the range locally through agents Cane Time. Contact: Cane Time
