Cyclone Lounger by Uhuru

Brooklyn-based Uhuru creatively reuses and repurposes materials for the fabrication of their furniture pieces. The pair used reclaimed wood from the demolished, iconic boardwalk at Coney Island to design their Cyclone Lounger. The lounger was inspired by the wooden Cyclone roller coaster, one of the last functional rides at Coney Island, with its curvy, track-like seat for you to relax in.


The varying shades of wood sit atop a laser-cut metal base that’s slightly chaotic, much like the base of a roller coaster.


In the Fall of 2012, the Cyclone Lounger was added to the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
