The company has just launched its latest products by award-winning Australian designer and UNSW Art & Design graduate, Trent Jansen. As part of the ever-popular Tidal Collection, Jansen has created the Tidal Chair and Tidal Sunlounge that reference the curves and lap lines of the NSW coast where he lives. Jansen says, “The straight edges and tight radii give the pieces a unique 70s feel. They’re made from stainless steel wire with a powder coat or electro polished finish, and I like to think they are like a cool, refreshing drink on a long, hot day.”
