Spirit Song Teak Outdoor Furniture
The Spirit Song Lounge Chair and Ottoman are an artistic elaboration on anthropometric considerations that fuse modern styling with the longevity of teak to enhance your space and quality of living.
The forms of the chair and ottoman are sculpted using a series of parallel elements held together with stainless steel tensioned members and spacers. The sinuous lines of these pieces recall the rarefied designs of Christophe Pillet, and the parallel lamination of wooden elements harkens back to the Experimental Edges of Frank Gehry. In addition to subtle historic references, the Spirit Song designs by Robert Tiffany and Barbara Tiffany convey fresh new insight as evidenced by their receipt of the Design Excellence Award at the International Casual Furniture Exhibition—The world’s highest honor for wooden furniture design.
The heartwood of the teak tree contains oils and minerals that lend it longevity and beauty. In addition, strong dimensional stability lends this tropical hardwood the ideal characteristics for use in outdoor furniture simultaneously yielding items with a subdued beauty whilst exhibiting resistance to extreme climatic conditions.
The Spirit Song lounge chair, and matching chair ottoman fuse weather-resistant teak and stainless steel into eye-catching organic designs. Not only for the garden or deck, pieces from this award-winning Spirit Song line of furniture can be found at mountaintop retreats, tropical island resorts, national museums, corporate parks, university campuses, and a host of other public spaces.
