Made of rotationally-molded polyethylene, the wide, satellite-shaped chair calls out to the sitter, inviting lounging with a body-cradling seat and backrest.

Integrated into the form are two armrests. A hole in the seat allows for drainage. The wide circular base can sit on most even surfaces, from grass to gravel to rugs. Though generous in size, the Kite Chair is hollow and light enough for easy moving.

Weather resistant and UV protected, it can be left outdoors year-round without deterioration. The Kite is manufactured in the Netherlands, by Label.
