Surf's up! For the multidisciplinary studio's first collab, Laun cofounders Rachel Bullock and Molly Purnell partnered with fellow Angeleno Chet Callahan of Chet Architecture, a firm that's no stranger to these pages. The result is Mondos, an outdoor furniture collection named for the beach where Callahan lives. A powder-coated aluminum sun lounge that channels 1980's pool furniture sports a retro vinyl-strap seat and an oversize wheel for easy maneuvering when chasing rays. With a curved backrest echoing the Mondo's Beach seawall, the groovy armchair also comes in loveseat and three-seat sofa versions (and check out the matching side table). The materials palette exudes surf culture: Think longboard-appropriate fiberglass and stretchy wetsuitlike neoprene upholstery in neon yellow and oceanic blue-green.
