Steel mesh chaise-longue
Membrane is a steel chaise longue that is virtually transparent. A single thread of stainless steel is wound in a continuous spiral, and then a force of twenty-eight tons is applied slowly and strategically to create its simple supine form. Surface and structure are one: there is no chassis; it is a true and organic monocoque.
Membrane is made of pure stainless steel with no applied coatings or finishing products, meaning that it is suitable for exterior use. A marine-grade variation is available for poolside applications.
