A ‘Zephyr’ - often referred to in sailing where a yacht may catch a gentle, uplifting breeze - is a phenomenon that draws parallels to the windswept, graceful lines of the Zephyr Lounger.

The nautically- influenced piece by celebrated Australian designer, Charles Wilson, sets sail on his debut release for leading Australian outdoor furniture manufacturer, Tait. Where elegance meets cool comfort and lazing the day away in the Zephyr Lounger might lead you to believe you were gliding through the Whitsundays on a yacht.

Offering intuitive and forgiving support at all the right touch points, the Zephyr Lounger provides elevated, ergonomic comfort in the outdoors. Through the slightly accentuated recline and tensioned sling-style canvas, both lower back and upper neck are gently cradled. Breathable marine-grade canvas and a gap between seat and backrest allow for air movement through the piece. Even in the presence of a gentle breeze on a hot day, the lounger keeps you cool and comfortable.

The Zephyr Lounger is offered in four options, low-back, high-back, with, or without arms. Featuring high-performance materiality to withstand extreme coastal conditions; the frame is formed stainless steel extrusion, the arms are manufactured with solid die-cast stainless steel, the canvas is marine-grade, and the frame may be finished in your choice of hard-wearing, exterior-grade and UV stable textured powder coat.

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

Wilson

Sydney - NSW

Raised on his family’s farm in Forbes, (Central New South Wales, Australia), Charles Wilson studied Industrial Design at University in Sydney, later maintaining his focus on furniture design. In speaking of his preference to design furniture, Wilson explains “in the digital age, it’s one of the few practices which truly addresses human factors due to the ergonomic considerations required of a piece”. Distinguishable by sophisticated ergonomics, fluid forms and sinuous lines, Wilson’s work reveals an inherent mid-century modern influence. Wilson has worked with some of the most renowned furniture houses internationally including; Herman Miller and Menu, and holds several accolades, including; The Australian Design Award for Menu, The Bombay Sapphire Design Award and Indesign Luminary.
