Greek designers create next generation of floating sunbeds out of fiberglassThe material allows for the sofas to safely stay afloat

When it comes to leisure by the sea, nothing comes close to Greek expertise. If this statement needs affirmation, then there is no stronger proof of Hellenic ingenuity than the ‘Waves’ line of outdoors furniture. Created by Greek designers Manos Tsikliotis and Vivian Paraschos for INOMO designs, ‘Waves’ are 2 meter long floating sunbeds.

The name is a reference to the movement of the Mediterranean sea, but the appeal lies in the material used – fiberglass – which allows for the sunbed to float easily, making it ideal for use in the sea, anchored in shallow water, as well as on sand.

The luxurious looking floating sofas have made a significant impression and are currently sold internationally, but still remain an up-market product, priced at…€2,800 each, neoskosmos.com notes.
