Architecture and furniture unite in the AD11 Outdoor Lounge Chair, designed by and exclusively available at The Conran Shop. Made from oak-veneered marine plywood, the AD11 is available in three vigorous hues of yellow, blue, and red, each featuring a discrete bottle opener for the ultimate spring-summer relaxation. Brand new for 2023, AD11 is our modern interpretation of the classic Adirondack chair typology. The two independent backrests provide ergonomic comfort, while generous armrests promote lounging
