"We were inspired by the beauty of black steel-frame windows and wanted to capture this in a piece of furniture. There is an elegance and lightness achieved in the acrylic when set against a darker frame. We always want to push ourselves to create unique pieces that will surprise and hopefully delight people."

- Sarah Gibson & Nicholas Karlovasitis, designers.

Fun facts about acrylic – it’s a thermoplastic that is impact-resistant and doesn’t heat up when left in the sun. Along with its powder-coated stainless steel frame, the design is UV stable and completely waterproof.
