GLOSTER | MAYA Outdoor Lounge
Design Mark Gabbertas
Maya takes the principle of the iconic Cloud frame and refines it to reflect and enhance the sophistication of the new Gloster design philosophy, with particular attention given to the materials and technologies at the forefront of outdoor furniture design.
When the Cloud range was launched in 2010, it incorporated new thinking and technology in the design of the upholstered elements and made these as comfortable as their interior cousins. Cloud not only invented the ‘outdoor lounge’ category, it went on to define it. So how do you improve this? It is often easier for a designer to start again rather than take an existing design and make it better. This was the challenge; the gentle, but meaningful evolution of an existing idea. To distil and keep the spirit of the original, but refresh the aesthetic and expand its possibilities.
The Maya frame features an ultra-slender powder coated aluminium profile connected to cast aluminium legs. Side and back cushions are subtly revised in profile and detail and additions to the range include console tables and planters that allow for a series of living landscapes to be created outdoors.
