Designed by Greg Benson and Jeff Taly for Loll Designs
The inspiration for the Cabrio Lounge Chair (2009) came from a desire to strip away excess and greatly simplify the overflared Adirondack chairs that are found in the market today. Designers Greg Benson and Jeff Tally point out how the Cabrio’s single-plank back and wide arms are a nod toward the Westport Chair, which was the inspiration for and predates the Adirondack. With a seat that’s low to the ground and generously angled, Cabrio is built for casual lounging and enjoying the outdoors. The material is 100% recycled plastic reclaimed from used milk jugs, but has the look and feel of virgin material and can be recycled again if necessary. This durable chair will last for years outside with no maintenance whatsoever. With so much going for it, it’s no surprise to us that Cabrio received a 2009 Good Design® Award from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. Made in U.S.A.
This all-weather piece is fade-resistant, waterproof and maintenance free.
The stainless steel fasteners are visually discreet.
100% post-consumer plastic reclaimed from used milk jugs.
90% of the waste from Loll’s manufacturing process is sent to a recycling plant.
Founded in 2005 by Greg Benson and Jeff Taly, Loll Designs is built on the philosophy that an eco-friendly product "should be better in every way than its non-eco-friendly counterpart." Using 100% recycled high-density polyethylene, Loll's outdoor furniture collections embody this maxim. Designed and made in Duluth, Minnesota, all Loll products are sourced domestically and are 100% recyclable.
Benson and Taly didn't set out initially to create brilliant and sustainable outdoor furniture their first endeavor was the creation of skateboard parks. Loll's history really begins back in 1997 when Benson and Taly created TrueRide, a design and build contractor specializing in custom municipal skate parks. They created over 400 parks in 10 years, using this incredibly durable, eco-friendly material. In keeping with their goals of minimizing waste, they were looking for something to do with the excess material from the parks and Loll Designs was born. Read more >
