Images: Dvelas
We featured re-purposed sails here and now here are some another interesting uses of sail material from Spanish company Dvelas.  The Vaurien Lounger is comprised of an outer cover of recovered sail, fibre glass batten frame and inner foam filling.  Its peculiar shape provides support for the head as well as shade from the sun and protection from the wind.  GĂ©nois, the beanbag, is also made with recovered sail fabric which tenses when the seat is used giving the back rigidity while moulding to and providing support for the body.  Each piece is (by necessity) a limited edition based on the specific plastic qualities, patina, marks and numbers of the sail used in the manufacture.
