Swing by Lionel Doyen

Lionel Doyen X Sunbrella is a collaboration between the French designer and Dickson, manufacturers of Sunbrella, textiles made for the outdoors. Working with a metal rod frame and wrapping it with straps made from Sunbrella, Doyen created a swing to show just how strong the material really is.


The bright yellow rods are partially exposed from underneath the beige wrappings. The straps continue around the frame and are even used to suspend the swing.


Swing debuted at Maison&Objet in September 2013.
