Wiel Arets for Gutzz

By: Happy Hotelier - Published: • References: 213.207.85.139 & chairblog.eu
The Reversible Bikini Lounger is designed by Dutch architect Wiel Arets for Gutzz. The idea came from young ladies sunbathing in Aret's garden with a towel draped over a large stone.

Apparently this is the first ever chair that Gutzz has produced. The chair is yet in preproduction phase:
Gutzz Claims: It is the first ever Reversible Recliner.
A reversible reclining chair. It looks so simple, but crazily enough no one has ever thought of it before. Top architect and designer Wiel Arets together with Gutzz has managed to come up with a uniquely shaped chair on which you can lie on your back or on your front to sun yourself. Courage and innovative thinking have gone into this magnificently designed, extremely comfortable and ergonomic chaise longue upholstered in luxury fabric.


I dare to claim that there are more reversible designs around. See for instance the Chair 777.
