VAURIEN floating lounger

Vaurien in French means a rogue, a rascal, a villain, a lout... In navigation it is a small craft that is very easy to sail; it is a very tactical boat on which many great sailors have cut their teeth. The small sails of these boats inspired the idea of an easy chair that protects you from the sun and the wind by the curve of the sail’s surface. Its shape is achieved by mounting the fabrics on a structure of fibreglass battens. An inner air chamber makes it float.
