Where technology was long moving in the direction to emancipate itself from its dependence on nature, projects like this Repos Fertile lawn chair strive to bring modern man back to a place where the industrial world overlaps with the organic one. While positioned on this perch, a person can contemplate the part that he plays between these different but connected worlds.

House.Work assembled this sturdy outdoor armchair using recycled stainless steel grilles that bear a resemblance to the bodies of shopping carts. A PVC fabric seat stretches from backrest to bottom and provides a little extra padding between the sitter and hard metal. Gaping caged voids give the Repos Fertile is substantial frame and they were designed to become trellises for the climbing plants around the piece.
