Summer time
“Grace” by Samuel Wilkinson for Emu
Apr 5, 2014

Spring is invariably followed by summer. And when the sun is scorching and the air stands still of a night, people tend to spend time outdoors. And that certainly doesn’t mean just picnicking on lawns, but also sipping Gin-&-Tonics at table. Others knew this well before Samuel Wilkinson. But he has nevertheless designed a chair (with and without armrests) and a matching table for Italian outdoor furniture makers Emu. Decent, no frills. Straightforward, practical, unobtrusive, and durable – it’s made of injection-molded aluminum. The tubes are welded making for a stable unit, and the square table top can be folded up to save space and keep it dry should it surprisingly rain. “Grace” is the name of these new summer companions. So time to get the tonic water out of the fridge door… (tw)
