“We basically took the form of the barge on the Nile, which inspires images of the outdoors and summer, [and] turned it into an outdoor sofa,” said Hedayat Islam of design firm Eklego, which specialize in fusing different elements from both past and present, various cultures and art forms to produce unique furniture and product designs.

The depet barge from Ancient Egypt leant Eklego a silhouette with which they played, ultimately presenting a showpiece perfect for one’s outdoor space. Both regal and grand, the sunbed needs nothing but a few pillows, and time dedicated to pursuing the art of summer napping.
