13&9’s LOW COLLECTION created for VITEO OUTDOORS is an innovative outdoor seating furniture range that offers people a different perspective and perception of their surroundings by giving them a direct relationship with the ground. Its main idea is to combine nearness to the ground with the convenience of a chair, providing comfortable seating on cushions with ergonomically designed and optimised chair backs. Sitting upright in a comfortable position creates the basis for easy conversation as well as providing daily relaxation and a different perspective that enhances the feeling of being at one with nature.


Due to the furniture’s combinability with LOW BOX, which provides storage space for cushions, it is possible to transform the seat height of individual elements, thus creating a whole range of different, flexibly designable seating and relaxation landscapes. These design criteria not only promote creative ideas, but also offer multifunctional solutions for various different living spaces and life periods. Reduced to the vital core, with a clear and harmonic design and manufactured regionally, each individual element of this sustainable range of furniture is formed from a single thin piece of Corian©, made for everyone with a proximity to nature.


The LOW LOUNGER & SIDE TABLE from this collection won the 2014 iF Product Design Awards.

About the designers

13&9 is the fruit of a co-operation between product and fashion designer Anastasija Sugic and architect and CEO of INNOCAD, Martin Lesjak. Design services and products from the realm of furniture, fashion, accessories, lighting, sound, art, product and industrial design draw from the context of an architecturally inspired definition of form and function and continuously reinvented fashion design as well as the diversity of contrasts. 13&9 combine functional necessities and innovations with the highest aesthetic standards and emotional components to create the core of 13&9 design: products that offer supreme value.


Their aim is to create products with a multitude of alternative uses, designed to stimulate the user’s imagination. This interdisciplinary idea encompasses all their design concepts and development processes of products and projects, including various external partnerships, co-operation projects with smaller manufacturers and regional production, in order to foster responsible environmental attitudes. Meanwhile, their design is even sought after in New York, and product and fashion designer Anastasia Su and architect Martin Lesjak have since twice been invited to represent Austria at WantedDesign during the New York Design Week. In collaboration with Chrysanthemum Partners, they made around 66 million media impressions worldwide, including in Interior Design Magazine, Metropolis, 360° Design, Azure, Elle Décor Italy and Casa Vogue Brazil. 13&9 also represented Austria at Istanbul Design Week 2013.
