  • Lollygagging with Loll Designs

    Loll Designs produces outdoor furniture and accessories for the modern lollygagger. Loll designs and manufactures durable, all-weather outdoor furniture made from 100% recycled plastic – mostly from single-use milk jugs. Loll’s modern outdoor furniture adds a unique and contemporary aesthetic to outdoor spaces.

    The Loll 4-Slat Adirondack has more comfort than you would expect from an outdoor chair, and even more so when you factor in that you will never have to work on it. The thick recycled plastic feels solid and at more than 50 pounds this chair will not blow around. With your choice of a clean flat profile or more traditional curves, the contoured back and seat will make you want to lollygag for hours and feel good about it too. Unlike most Adirondacks, we have hidden nearly every fastener for the cleanest lines. The Loll Adirondack Collection of Chairs and Tables has more comfort than you would expect from an outdoor chair.

Unlike most Adirondacks, we have hidden nearly every fastener for the cleanest lines. Also available in kids' sizes.

     

    Based in Duluth, MN, Loll’s history dates back to 1997 with the creation of TrueRide, a design and building contractor specializing in custom municipal skate parks. The TrueRide crew designed, built, installed and serviced more than 400 custom skateboard parks across the nation and abroad during a 10­ year period.

    With a nod back to our beginnings as TrueRide, Loll teamed up with Grow Anthology to design this monster of a longboard. The deck is made with ½ inch thick paper composite Richlite and is both rigid and flexible and at 35 ¼ inches long and 9 inches wide you have plenty of stance options and the 25 3/4 inch wheel base is superbly stable. The Avila 3DM 75mm wheels have an incredibly smooth feel on a variety of surfaces and the Gullwing 50(add degree symbol) trucks make for effortless turning. HDPE truck risers and wheel cut outs in the deck allow for deep carving and an integrated bottle opener is there for emergencies. Whether you’re out cruising or using the Lollygagger Longboard for transportation, it’s a sweet ride.

    dsc_7599 The Loll Heritage Balance Bike is made out of recycled plastic. Complete with Arbor Wood handlebars, 12” wheels, adjustable seat height, a genuine Heritage medallion, and a lot of built-in fun and love.

     

    Originally, Loll used recycled post­industrial plastic (scrap that has been diverted or recovered during the manufacturing process), but by 2007, they began sourcing post-consumer plastic (material that has been used by consumers and diverted or recovered from waste destined for a landfill). This is when Loll, as both a product and a company, really started to take shape as a green company. An estimated eight recycled milk jugs go into each pound of a Loll Adirondack Chair, which equals about 400 milk jugs per chair. Loll's recycled material is 100% recyclable, so its purpose can change again into another useful product when that day comes.

     

    The complete group includes a Lounge, Rocker, and Side Car Table all styled with convenient handles and a sporty stripe. The Lounge is designed for numerous sitting positions either down low or up top in the bleacher position. The bleacher seat also doubles as a standing height table. The Rocker is wider and lower and sets the driver in a perfect balance of bodily comfort and mental relaxation. The Side Car table ties the collection together and will help make pit stops last as long as necessary. Both the Lounge and Rocker have an open storage trunk in the back for outdoor accessories. Beneath the top shelf on the Lounge is installed a stainless steel bottle opener for quick bottle changes. Helmet and suit not included. Made in Duluth, MN, USA. The complete Loll Racer Collection includes a Lounger, a Rocker, and a Side Car Table all styled with convenient handles and a sporty stripe. Both the lounger and rocker have an open storage trunk in the back for outdoor accessories. Beneath the top shelf on the lounger is a stainless steel bottle opener for quick bottle changes. Racing helmet not included.

    Inspired by the ubiquitous “motel” chair from the 1940’s, Pliny the Lounger is a timely update on this classic. Designed and manufactured by Loll Designs with Sielaff Corporation using sustainable materials, a stainless steel frame is married to Loll’s 100% recycled and recyclable high-density polyethylene. Pliny features an elegantly mandrel bent 1” tubular stainless steel frame with poly seat and back. The welded tube frame has no open ends and is a one- piece construction that will last a lifetime. The Pliny has that classic “bounce” feel that brings the seated back to a moment in their familiar past, but the chairs’ new roots are clearly in the present. The Pliny Ottoman accompanies the chair and can double as a side table or stool. Inspired by the ubiquitous “motel” chair from the 1940s, the Loll Pliny Lounger is a timely update on a classic.
