Tessa Furniture became an internationally desirable name with the T1 range of lounge chairs.
Impeccable attention to detail displayed through the sculptural frame and joinery has defined Tessa pieces. The company quickly established a reputation for its Scandinavian influenced design and quality Australian craftsmanship.
Lowen received a number of design awards for Tessa. The company won the Dunhill Design Award in 1970, then at Cologne Fair in 1971 the T4 Hammock was a crowd favourite. Tessa still exists as a design and manufacture enterprise based in Australia.
