The Tidal Lounger - a supremely elegant outdoor lounge chair - embodies Australia’s infamous coastline with its flowing curves and lapping lines. Tidal marks ripple up the seat base breaking into lush, rolling curves. Straight edges and tight radii give a nod to decades past.

Inspired by Australia’s surf culture, Trent Jansen applied science to his design by researching wave formations and linear diagrams. Studying the energy and pull of spiralling water spouts as part of the creative process behind the Tidal Lounger – an ultramodern outdoor lounge chair – Jansen’s design intelligence is further evidenced in material selection, form and function.

Sturdy stainless-steel wire is expertly crafted into the gently undulating frames of the collection pieces. Tidal is a masterful intersection of raw materiality and a dynamic yet lithe aesthetic. Tidal is composed of Dining, Lounging and Occasional Tables providing a comprehensive series of options.

Porcelain and glass tabletop options and bespoke exterior grade upholstered cushioning for seating and lounging promise enduring outdoor comfort.

All Tait pieces are made locally and come with a 5-year warranty.

Thirroul, NSW

Trent Jansen grew up in Kiama, a small town on the south east coast of Australia. Following a period of study at the Industrial Design School of the University of Alberta in Canada, Trent graduated from the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales with a Bachelor of Design.

In late 2004, Trent opened his own studio in Sydney where he continues to create honest and poetic sustainable design, developing pieces that aim to foster a lasting relationship with the user. Instead of a disposable object, the work becomes a lifelong companion. Accolades include the Melbourne Design 2016 Award for Best Product Design (Home & Garden), London Design Museum’s Designs of the Year Award and Idea’s Emerging Designer Award.

WAVE FORMATIONS


 

Wave Formations

The Tidal Collection design is based on the formation stages of a wave as it rolls toward the shore: The Tidal Sunlounge is the far out wave that slowly builds beyond the breakers. The Tidal Lounger is a curling wave at the place in the set where surfers usually lurk; and the Tidal Chair is the close-out that breaks on the sand. This collection makes use of the waves at the heart of Australian beachside culture and transforms these ephemeral forms, created by the tide and the sand, into sculptural, functional objects.
