The Wino Table was my first design, conceived before I began my formal studies of architecture. The Lapo Lounger surfaced toward the end of my education.
The Lapo Lounger holds a place near & dear to my heart. I originally designed this form while on a study abroad semester in Florence, Italy. We were given the Uffizi Gallery Exit as a site. I scaled down my structural design to create the Lapo Lounger.
My architecture studio professor was Lapo Binazzi; A founding member of the radical architecture group UFO. His influence was great.

I think I may never forget him.
