    Loll Designs came into being in 1997 when a Minnesota-based municipal skate park designer/builder, TrueRide, designed, built, and installed more than 450 custom skateboard parks in cities across the U.S. and abroad. TrueRide’s founders, fueled by an inherent concern for the environment, looked for a use for the recyclable materials in their skate park projects.

    In 2003 Loll Designs was conceived as a way to re-purpose excess skate ramp material into outdoor furniture. The iconic Adirondack chair was a natural place to start and it was launched in 2006.

     

    Loll 4-Slat Adirondack Chair comes in a choice of compact, standard and tall sizes. 10 fun colour choices available. It is also available as a rocker.
