F-Chair Outdoor Lounge Chair


Why We Love It

An archetypal lounge chair, the F-Chair evolved out of the C-Chair and shares the same tapered rear legs, though the F-Chair features upright front legs. The more relaxed incline and paddle-shaped armrests, together with its woven seat which widens at the front, make the F-Chair an altogether more leisurely affair.

  • The garden gets an upgrade with the simple functionality of two of French architect and designer Marcel Gascoin’s most enduring iconic designs.
  • A new outdoor version of the much-loved C-Chair – a dining chair originally designed in 1947 for post-war housing in France – is joined outside by a little-known Gascoin gem, the F-Chair.
  • For the new outdoor versions, a combination of hardwearing and naturally durable teak and weatherproof woven cord, inspired by Gascoin’s nautical upbringing, makes the perfect material choice for high-quality exterior furniture.
  • Both the C-Chair and the F-Chair are optimized for the outdoors in both their ergonomics and their materiality.
  • Proportions have been fine-tuned to maximize comfort and frames have been carefully crafted with traditional joinery using plantation teak.
  • The seats and backrests are tightly woven from an outdoor all-weather fiber made of an extruded polyethylene and twisted to resemble natural hyacinth woven furniture.
  • The weave pattern creates triangle shapes from all four sides of the seat and backrest, converging at the center of each like an envelope.
  • The woven cord captures the natural look of the indoor version, while being durable enough to withstand the elements outside.
  • Teak’s naturally high oil content allows it to stay in fantastic condition in even the harshest of climates, without additional treatment, developing a beautiful silvery patina over time.
  • The chairs only use farmed plantation teak with SVLK certification, which ensures biodiversity, sustainable forestry practices, and provides additional economic benefits to the local economy.
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
  • Meets European strength and mechanical safety requirements for contract use.
