"It was imperative that comfort be designed into the aesthetic. Many lounges use a lot of material, structurally, in order to keep it together, but we designed the Sundae Range to challenge this. We needed to build around a minimal steel structure but keep the voluminous shape." - Jason Ju.

The Sundae project came about in 2019, when an opportunity arose for Jason, DesignByThem’s Design and Production Coordinator since 2015, to design a product for a market gap that DesignByThem wanted to fill. Under the guidance of directors Sarah Gibson and Nicholas Karlovasitis, Jason has helped develop many of DesignByThem’s current range.  3. Sundae Lounges by DesignByThem  - ph. Pete Daly

Sundae invites you to relax with its low height, deeper seat and generous curves. With its modular design approach, Sundae is highly scalable and versatile in the number of seats it can offer without the overuse of materials. The design utilises multi-layered green-star rated foam and springs to balance the need for support and longevity.

For comfort be designed into the aesthetic, round and voluminous profiles were sculpted throughout the form to enhance the softness of its upholstered exterior. Its low height and deeper seat combined with generous curves give the design a modest and inviting presence with a playful character. 4. Sundae Lounges by DesignByThem  - ph. Pete Daly

“Many lounges utilise a lot of material, structurally, in order to keep it together, but we designed the Sundae Range to challenge this for the construction. We needed to build around a minimal steel structure but keep the voluminous shape. To do this, we experimented over multiple prototypes with foam layering techniques using specific layers and densities to get a comfortable feel. We also had to be mindful when it came to upholstery as different types of foams interacted differently once stretched and covered.” - Jason Ju.

Sundae ultilises multi-layered foam and springs to balance the need for support and comfort. In combination with its hybrid metal and FSC plywood frame the foam used is low VOC, commercial-grade and green star rated. Choose your upholstery from our House fabrics and leathers or specify your own.
