French company LaFuma have designed a new outdoor recliner for sufferers of back pain.
November 14th, 2008
Australians are now able to relax, with an environmentally friendly recliner from French company LaFuma now available.
The recliner, Futura Clippe ACB Recliner, is made from sustainable materials such as wood fibre, natural resin as glue, and recycled plastic.
A twist on the traditional recliner, the chair’s unique design is intended to relieve lower back pain through removing pressure on the spine. Using what LaFuma call their ‘Zero Gravity’ concept, it elevates the sitter’s legs, and places them in a position where they can recover from back pain.
The recliner has a lightweight steel tubing frame, making it easy to fold for transport with a maximum weight limit of 140kg. LaFuma aimed to create a product that is versatile and durable so it won’t be thrown away in the next season.
The recliner is adaptable to a range of different environments, and is well suited for the design, environmental and health conscious alike.
Available in Australia through Bad Backs
