Lockdown lounger

With furloughing still in the process of being wound down, contemporary design firm Established & Sons hasn’t been sitting on its hands during lockdown but has instead been actively promoting its own angle on how you can best park yourself. Its most recent PR featured a number of designer products and possible uses – the Barbican chaise longue by Konstantin Grcic for yoga. Felix de Pass’ elemental A Bench ‘for improvised workouts’ and the Bouroullecs’ Quilt seating, brightly coloured and very plumply upholstered for…well… throwing yourself against when it all gets too much? PiP’s favourite though, is Philippe Malouin’s Mollo personal lounger, made from oodles of high-density foam. So round and large, it seems nigh-on impossible to be within two metres of anyone, you can curl up on this one and feel as safe as a baby in a bouncer.
