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.

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.
At Tait, we make products for life. Our products are crafted from high-performance materials designed to withstand the diverse Australian elements. We nurture our craft, combining timeless and cutting-edge designs with beautiful finishes in order to elevate your outdoor (or indoor) experience.
Our collections are handcrafted from weather-resistant materials, making each piece a durable choice. In order to maintain their look and feel over time, Tait items need ongoing care and maintenance. The frequency of maintenance will vary depending on the level of care you want to provide, your personal standards and requirements as well as the environment within which the product lives.
Careless handling, treatment or misuse of our products can result in damage and is not covered under our five-year structural warranty. Please click through to the care instructions relevant to the specific materials and finishes of your product, and refer to the list to the right for warranty exclusions.
The warranty does not cover damage from mishandling, misuse, physical or chemical abuse, by not following proper care and maintenance instructions, accidental damage, damage from chipping, cracking, impact damage or breaking due to customer abuse.
Wash regularly with warm soapy water and mild detergent using a soft cloth. For commercial, industrial or marine environments we recommend monthly maintenance. Always rinse well with water, to remove any remaining detergent.
Avoid steam cleaning, pressure washing, abrasive cleansers, steel brushes/wools and cleaners containing chlorine. Avoid scratching the surface by dry dusting. Never use strong solvents to clean powder coated surfaces. Aggressive solvents such as turpentine, white spirits, thinners, citrus based cleaners, Spray and Wipe, and other aggressive solvents are harmful to the extended life of the powder coated surface. Do not allow detritus, organic or man-made matter to settle on the product surface. We recommend removing any buildup of mineral deposits leaching from soils and fertilisers, should it occur on Tait’s planters.
Rough treatment of powder-coated furniture can result in chipping of the coated surface; this is not covered under warranty.
Most Tait products come with protective fittings – stacking glides, bumpers, socks/feet and glides. These aid in protection against chipping and scratching. Powder coated chairs are designed to be set in place gently.
Touch-up paint may be purchased on request. It is advisable to repair minor nicks and scratches as soon as they appear.
When placing a furniture cover over a table for an extended period of time, it is recommended to first place an empty plastic pot plant in the centre of the table, then placing the furniture cover over the top. This will prevent the possibility of the furniture cover adhering to the table surface.
Should you wish to touch up any blemishes which may occur, please contact your nearest Tait showroom and request a Powder Coat Touch Up Kit. Please follow our Powder Coat Touch Up Guide (available under ‘Dimensions and Specs – Download Assets’ on the product page) for application details.
Powder coat is a decorative finish for indoor and outdoor use. While it assists with metal protection, it is not a corrosion protection in its own right. The components of Tait powder coated products are produced in either aluminium, stainless steel or mild steel.
The mild steel base materials are treated with two levels of pre-protection that guard against corrosion. The products are then powder coated to make the surface resistant to corrosion and suitable for use in exterior environments.
Minor corrosion spots at the weld joins – under table tops, bases and seat frames, may be evident on mild steel products. These do not affect the structural integrity of the product and are not covered by the Tait warranty.
Whilst every care is taken to provide the most suitable finish according to the use and the environment the product will be subjected to, Tait cannot guarantee this decorative finish against scratching, scuffing, chipping, fading or corrosion as a result of use in harsh seafront, extreme or environments where chlorine is present.
Tait offer a range of powder coat colours which offer excellent UV stability and are suitable for use in outdoor applications. Whilst powder coat offers excellent colour retention, natural fading is not covered under the Tait warranty. To ensure longevity of this finish please refer to the care and maintenance.
The warranty does not cover any occurrence of detritus, organic or man-made matter settling on the product surface. The warranty also excludes buildup of mineral deposits leaching from soils and fertilisers, should it occur on the surface of Tait’s planters. Nor does this warranty cover any product corrosion directly caused by aforementioned matter.
Tait assume no responsibility for product damage caused by the use of furniture covers.
