Stephen Burks has designed the KIDA Hanging Lounger to be as delightful to look at, as it is to use. The inspiration of this collection is alluded to in its appellation.

Kida-san inspired the name for the feeling of this project and continues to bless it with success: (Ki) Tree for its open structure and support & (Da) Grassy Field blowing in the wind, for which we will always be grateful - Stephen Burks. 

This is the first DEDON collection to be wrapped rather than woven in DEDON’s fiber touch. The 824 meters of fiber touch, wrapped around a powder-coated aluminium frame, makes this design as beautiful as it is technically superb. Wrapped in innovation, the KIDA is incredibly lightweight and sturdy.

Featuring an open cradle-like form, this lounger provides the ideal seat in which to sit, swing and relax. Its organic form, that draws inspiration from its namesake, creates a lounger that is open, airy, light and inviting. Once inside users can enjoy the luxurious outdoor cushion covering the entire seating area, which is positioned perfectly for lounging or lying back.      

The Hanging Lounger is versatile in its suspension capabilities. Whether it is attached to its optional base or suspended using the included hanging beam, KIDA is the perfect place to relax creating space and time for yourself.

DEDON was born out of a love and willingness to think outside the box, in pursuit of quality. They were the first to weave synthetic fibers onto luxurious designs, the first to enable absolute premium quality and the first to become a leading global brand – paving the way for the woven furniture industry. It is no coincidence, that 30 years later one of their designs, in collaboration with Burks, has landing them such an honour.

Congratulations to Stephen Burks and the entire DEDON team on a well deserved win.

The KIDA Hanging Lounger can be viewed in many of the Cosh Living showrooms, in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth. For more information, or to visit one of our showrooms, get in touch here.
