About Loll Designs
Loll Designs makes outdoor furniture for the "modern lollygagger," people who play hard, work hard, relax hard, and appreciate the outdoors. The founders of Loll Designs joined forces in 1997 as TrueRide, designing municipal skate parks around the world. They became adept at turning recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE), better known as #2 plastic, into large-scale sculptural skate ramps. Then, as a way to repurpose excess skate ramp material and with their expertise in 3D design, they evolved from skate parks to Epicurean, a successful line of kitchen accessories, in 2003, and Loll Designs in 2006, with its debut of an Adirondack chair that displayed a playful but modern, refined aesthetic. Loll Designs has been recognized for excellence in design and a strong commitment to sustainability with the ICFF Editor's Award, multiple Green Design Awards, Green Dot Award, Time magazine Green Design 100 Awards, and the New York House Innovative Green Award. Loll Designs is based in Duluth, Minnesota.
The Glide bench embodies the perfect balance between restraint and innovation in design. The form of the bench—the way the seat and back seamlessly join the metal base with no visible screws—is simultaneously minimal and elegant yet unlike any other bench Landscape Forms has previously created. Glide's durable, 100-percent post-consumer recycled plastic (HDPE) seat and back won’t get too hot or cold and requires low-to-no maintenance. The four vibrant color options are blended into the plastic rather than surface applied, and a UV-resistant compound is added to the pigment. The metal base is finished in Pangard II® HAPS, VOC, and lead-free polyester powdercoat that resists fading and chipping. Glide is the result of a partnership between Loll Designs and Landscape Forms, two companies dedicated to enhancing outdoor experiences through design-led and sustainability-focused solutions.
