Rooted in Simon Legald’s characteristic honesty, the Vig Outdoor Lounge Chair has been thoughtfully designed to be an enduring piece of functional design. The use of Robinia wood slats for the seat and back provides incredible durability, as the wood is known for its exceptional strength, durability, and weather resistance.
The combination of wood and powder-coated steel makes the chair incredibly hardy and easy to maintain, ideal for a huge variety of different outdoor spaces.
Simon Legald studies design at the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and will graduate in the Summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable, and is what describes functionality of the products. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological- and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects, and makes them trustworthy. In my designs I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
