Combining traditional DEDON craftsmanship with fresh innovations in cushion technology, weave and material mix, the LOU lounge system takes outdoor lounging to a whole new level. Designed by Toan Nguyen, a master of modular systems, LOU was conceived from the ground up as a series of overlapping horizontal strata, with armrests defined by a subtle relief in the woven structure of the seat. Thanks to a semi-open weave and hidden gliders, the system gives an impression of extraordinary lightness, as if floating. And with the wide range of modules available, including a curved one for a special twist, it can be configured for any outdoor setting, however large or small.
You could say the story of DEDON begins in a hospital bed in Munich in 1990. It's here, recovering from a devastating blow to the face, that Bobby Dekeyser, the promising young goalie of the bayern munich soccer club, abruptly decides to leave professional sport to pursue his life's true dream. "I just knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur," he explains. "I started DEDON right there in the hospital."
