Juxtaposing soft sculpted upholstery with a strong, low line frame, the new family of lounge chairs and tables feature crisp timber detailing, emphasised by a clean linear structure.
“It’s been a pleasure working with Tim, who brings an international perspective to Rakino,” says Katerina Zachariades, design director at Morgan. “His experience in furniture, lighting and interior design enables him to develop new product ideas with an understanding of commercial demands. We have enjoyed developing this chair and refining our production methods to achieve the light, simple structure that defines it.”
Describing his approach to the project, Rundle says, “I wanted to create something that felt quiet and inviting, that could feel right in your home, while being appropriate for hard working contract environments.”
Morgan has a tradition of naming its collections after places, which Tim embraced. He explains: “It only felt right we choose a New Zealand name, being designed by a Kiwi, albeit London based. Rakino is one of a cluster of small islands in the Hauraki Gulf, the body of water surrounding Auckland’s east coast. There people are able to escape the busy city, a short boat ride leaving you with a pleasant sense of isolation and calm. A comfortable low lounge chair in a busy hotel or workplace could, I hope, provide the same feeling.”
