If you’re looking for a design that will make a strong impact, you’ll undoubtedly achieve it with the lounger in our 356 collection. This is an item that hardly goes unnoticed thanks to its aerodynamic look, inspired by the first Porsche 356 cars from the 1950s. As it has such a strong presence, you won’t need much else to furnish your outdoor space. If you go for a bold colour like pink or red, the impact will be even greater.
This lounger is a highly recommendable design for intensive use because, thanks to its shape and the fact that it’s made from 100% recyclable polyethylene, it is particularly ergonomic, comfortable and durable. With this lounger the hours will slip by without you noticing. If you want to add a side table, take a look at the low model in the 356 collection, which goes perfectly with it.

“I'm interested in unusual objects. For me, a good design is one that I'd take with me if I moved house. I detest seeing copies, I find it unforgivable when something is copied opportunistically. A design must be, above all, original. I get inspiration from looking: during a journey, visiting an exhibition, leafing through a book of classics... personally I've always been attracted by Rationalism. If you work in design, you need to observe and review”.
José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales
“I'm a big fan of the outdoor life in the Mediterranean, where I was born. For me, good design should be stripped back, timeless, harmonious and functional, these are the qualities I try to work on as a designer. Beyond an elegant, minimalist look, I like to think about the constructive possibilities of my designs, that's why I tend to work with architects. I find inspiration in anything that excites me, whether it's architecture, painting, sculpture, dance or nature. I suppose my personality is another factor that gives my designs their distinctive look”.
José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales is Chairman and Artistic Director of GANDIABLASCO. He belongs to the second generation to head the company and in the nineties he was the one who led the firm in its shift towards contemporary design and internationalisation. In addition to continuing with the textile products business inherited from his father, José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales also began exploring the possibility of starting up a parallel range of specialist outdoor furniture and accessories.
Ever since he joined the company, José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales has been driving forward its steady progress towards contemporary design, both in terms of products and the brand. Working alongside designers Marisa Gallén and Sandra Figuerola, he renovated the company's image, introducing the current logo based on the stylised silhouette of a cat. However, it was building his summer house in Ibiza in 1996 and needing to source outdoor furniture that fitted in with its architectural style that prompted José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales's first venture into furniture design. He worked alongside the architect to develop the Na Xemena collection, which would be the basis of GANDIABLASCO's future incursion into the world of contemporary outdoor furniture.
Owing to the great reception of the company's first outdoor furniture collections in the market, production was later split into two brands: GANDIABLASCO specialising in outdoor products and GAN in textile items. Diabla is the third brand set up by José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales and is his most recent business project. With an imaginative and visionary style with undeniable Mediterranean influences, he has produced many furniture and accessory designs over the years for both GANDIABLASCO and GAN. He is behind the creation of a major part of the Diabla collection with pieces like Lipstick, Clip, Picnic and Clack!
