With its low-slung wooden frame and nautically evocative rope seat and backrest, Mathias Steen Rasmussen’s breakthrough MR01 Initial Lounge Chair has begged to be taken outside since its creation. Where the frame of the indoor edition is made from oak or walnut, the MR01 Initial Outdoor Lounge Chair is crafted from FSC®-certified iroko. This wood has proved itself ideally suited to Rasmussen’s design, maintaining its strong silhouette through the transition outside, and helping to emphasize the MR01 Initial Chair’s sculptural quality.As with the indoor edition, the MR01 Initial Outdoor Lounge Chair’s frame is constructed without the use of screws. To endure life outdoors, the MR01’s Initial Outdoor Lounge Chair’s has custom-made high-performance polyester rope. This material is waterproof, making it perfect for the poolside; UV-resistant, so it will not fade over long days in the sunshine, which means it will not degrade. An anti-deformation core prevents the rope stretching over time.
