Michael Craig Martin Deckchair
The ideal gift for outdoor enthusiasts. Lounge around in style in the garden next summer or hang it on the wall as a unique piece of artwork. All deckchairs have been generously designed by artists, designers, celebrities and children through Deckchair Dreams, a fantastic public art adventure, to celebrate the trees, wildlife and other rare and wonderful things of London’s eight Royal Parks.
Just 250 deckchairs of this design are available for you buy. Made from a solid, sustainable Merpauh wood frame with a quality artist’s woven canvas, you can enjoy snoozing on these deckchairs for years to come.
Michael Craig Martin
supports the Royal Parks, as he believes they give London its special quality. The city is unimaginable without them. He donated this deckchair design to Deckchair Dreams in 2013.
"I normally only draw images of everyday man-made objects. I chose to draw the bunch of bananas because more than most natural objects they look ‘designed’ in our sense as much as in nature’s. They seem to me to be the perfect example of Nature’s Grand Design."
Michael is a renowned artist of international stature, with work in the collections of museums including the Tate, Centre Pompidou in Paris, and Museum Of Modern Art in New York. An influential teacher at Goldsmiths College in London, he is considered instrumental in the emergence of the Young British Artists in the early 1990s.
