Gdynia Armchair. Fotel Gdynia.

On our annual Design Days in my city there is less and less interesting things to see I think. This year promoters asked 7 young designers to make something that could be used in the city in the future. 

Of all propositions there was only one that was interesting to me: Gdynia Armchair.

Actually it is a deck chair with sunsheild and sides.


The sides can be folded in different ways.


The armchair also has two inner pockets for books or drinks.

Hope you like my version of it and the idea in general. ;)


Mam takie wrażenie, że na Gdynia Design Days co roku jest mniej i mniej interesujących rzeczy. W tym roku organizatorzy zaproponowali siedmiu młodym projektantom stworzenie rzeczy użytkowej, którą będzie można w przyszłości wdrożyć w produkcję i wykorzystać w moim mieście.

Z tych zaproponowanych rzeczy najciekawszy wydał mi się  Fotel Gdynia.

Jak widać jest to zadaszony leżak z bocznymi osłonami.

Boki mogą zostać upięte na różne sposoby i zaopatrzone są w wewnętrzne kieszenie na picie lub książkę.

Mam nadzieję, że idea takiego leżaka i moja jego wersja się Wam spodobają. :)

Ewa!!!! I think it is AWESOME!!! I wish I had one in RL size!!! (And maybe a deck by the beach.....):)
Seriously... you are really mastering the art of Mini furniture making.... I think there is nothing you could not make in perfect scale!!! This looks SOOOO inviting! I will be lying in mine looking up at the clouds (just little puffy ones)and Daydreaming....!!!

This is stunning - both the idea and even more your miniature version!!! This chair reminds me of the big wickered beach chairs (don't know the real English expression, but you know what I mean) that are so common at our shores here... but in a light, handy version where you can take your own one to the beach with you without renting a big one... Fanstastic work!

Lovely idea. I immediately thought of a "Strandkorb" like BiWuBaer, too. You should make one! They are fantastic. I bought one for my garden (realsize)... even though they are invented for the beach.

Wow... the chair looks like summer, sun and beach! I love it!
Our summer ended one day and just the next day we had a perfect auctum weather... It´ s cold and rainy. I think the auctum is to early this year... bur maybe the sun will come back to this wonderful beach chair!
