The Single Cord Lounge by Josh Shiau is Contemporarily Airy

The Single Cord Lounge could be likened to a loom or even a harp. As its name suggests, it is made using a single uncut piece of cord that measures an impressive 100 feet in length. Secured tautly in a dynamic fashion, it provides a unique cushiony seat that could easily be regarded as an art piece as well. That said, people would sit on the Single Cord Lounge gladly.

Designed by Josh Shiau, a student based in Providence, Rhode Island, the Single Cord Lounge is framed by ash wood. Light and airy, the overall look is quite contemporary despite its resemblance to a couple of traditional objects. According to the designer, "The single cord design allows it to shift pressure from each interconnected section to another, allowing it to distribute weight in response to use while creating a rhythm of lines and motion."
