Does this skateboard lounge chair look familiar to you? That’s because it’s based on the iconic Eames lounge chair. Boasting both style and comfort, this skateboard lounge chair is the granddaddy of recreation. Fittingly, it’s called the God Father lounge chair.
The God Father lounge chair is designed by Skate Study House. This design collective recreates some of the most popular furniture pieces of the modern age, designing with the skateboarder in mind. Skate Study House keep an eye to innovative skateboard culture and utilize green materials in their designs. At the helm is Pierre Andre Senizergues, who considers himself both an environmentalist and an artisan, as well as fellow designer and skateboarder Gil Le Bon De LaPointe. When these two get together the outcome is a skate friendly blend of quality, durability and fashion.
We love this skateboard lounge chair and think the Skate Study House have done an awesome job channeling the design aesthetic of the Eames lounge chair. By seeing skate decks as headrests and imparting high end finishes in the lamination and leather upholstery, this skateboard lounge chair is perfectly adapted to skate culture and beyond.
We’d love to see this piece in our own living room. Wouldn’t you agree?
