Summer Cloud

Dedon, 2008

In astronomy, the Latin word equinox designates the two times each year when the sun’s ecliptic intersects the celestial equator. Equinox was also the working title for this weatherproof outdoor lounger that goes by the name Summer Cloud today. “The idea behind the design was to create a dialogue with the blazing orb, but also a feeling of intimacy and security,” Martin remembers.

Summer Cloud features a lounger and sunshade that are linked, but can be moved and adjusted completely independently of each other – an absolutely novel design. You don’t have to turn your head or get up to adjust the shade to changing sunlight conditions whenever you wish.
The circular cane base is a handy place to put personal items.
