Y-Ply

Maker Story

Ready to Lounge

At a beach on the Bay of Biscay in La Rochelle, France, a group of friends discovered that an ordinary fisherman’s stool made a great prop for lounging. From that first idea to the final prototype, Denis Fritsch has worked to create a minimalist outdoor accessory that marries comfort with portability. Called Y-Ply, his invention is a collapsible, hammock-like stool that you can position in different ways, depending on how you want to relax. It’s simple, lightweight and flexible—ready to pack or unpack at a moment’s notice.

When you want to rest outdoors, simply unfold Y-Ply and click the legs into position. You can use it as a pillow or headrest if you want to lie down, or you can position it behind your lower back if you want a little extra support while you’re sitting. Y-Ply is made of washable canvas, and it folds into a compact carrying case when you’re ready to roll.

Bringing a lounge chair to a beach, campsite or outdoor concert sounds like a great idea, but it’s not always practical to lug a heavy chair to a faraway setting. Blankets and towels are easier to pack, but all you really gain is a thin cushion between you and the earth. For the best of both worlds—comfort and portability—we’re packing Y-Ply.
