Beachboard

Date 2004

Description Beachboard was created to provide a convenient alternative to traditional beach towel. The headrest, with integrated structure, is ideal for reading on the beach. The structure also helps to delineate personal space and offers some privacy from passer-bys. The fins offers a safe, shaded place to hide drinks, valuables and belongings.

Inspiration Beachboard is reminiscent of Australia’s beach culture; surfing, colour, fauna (eg shark fins), flora (eg tea tree foliage), cliff topography, sand landscapes (castles and dunes) and the play of shadows.
