Denfair Sydney 2018 ‘best Australian product’: Trace sunlounge designed by Adam Goodrum for Tait.


Hot on the heels of winning Denfair’s ‘Best Product’ award for Trace the previous year, Tait presented the latest addition to the sought-after collection at DENFAIR Sydney this week. Tait were thrilled and humbled to once again receive the accolade of DENFAIR’s ‘Best Australian Product’ for the Trace sunlounge designed by leading Australian designer Adam Goodrum.avkztpla

The Trace sunlounge epitomises resort-style relaxation and poolside indulgence. Flaunting natural curves and plump upholstery the Trace sunlounge showcases Goodrum’s finesse for organic form. Aligning seamlessly with the design language of the sumptuous Trace collection the sunlounge parallel’s the distinctive tubular framework and signature stainless-steel mesh seen throughout the collection. Comprising seven typologies including armchair, sofa, modular sofa, coffee table, drinks trolley, planter and now sunlounge, the Trace collection has swelled into an all-encompassing, luxurious outdoor lifestyle series.7zcbxhqw

Featuring an intuitive handle mechanism the backrest is effortlessly elevated or lowered to your desired posture, offering glimpses of the signature Trace mesh once raised. Generous and luxurious reticulated foam upholstery is nestled within a corrosion-resistant tubular aluminium frame, with added laser-cut holes to aid drainage and evaporation. For smooth mobility, bespoke timber wheels detail a rubberised outer trim, mirroring those present on the Trace drinks trolley of the same collection. The Trace sunlounge is available in a range of hard-wearing, UV-stable textured powder coat hues and upholstery can be specified in a variety of premium, exterior-grade fabrics.

Exhibiting alongside the Trace sunlounge were many of Tait’s recently released collections, including their DENFAIR award-winning Seam collection designed by Adam Cornish. Conceived through a process similar to the act of tailoring a piece of fabric into a garment Seam embodies minimalism, functionality, and longevity.vzzyhefa

Tait’s Denfair stand presented a product focused, pared-back and conceptual approach. Their iconic outdoor pieces displayed against a stage of breeze-walls and dappled spotlighting – giving the notion of being outdoors or under a large shady tree. Awash with earthy tones including Paperbark, Ochre and Woodland Grey the colour palette of the stand made reference to the distinctive hues of Australia’s terrains and flora.
