GAN - Garden Layers

Patricia Urquiola creates Indian-inspired daybed

Traditional Indian daybeds inspired Patricia Urquiola's latest range of outdoor furniture for her Garden Layers collection produced by GAN.

The daybed has rounded legs made up of sections in different widths like the buildings blocks of toy furniture. The fabric stretches across the frame in different coloured strands of woven polypropylene, and you can choose between a tartan pattern or GAN’s tighter-knit Gofre weave. The powder coated aluminium frame comes in terracotta, grey or green.

Traditional Indian Mughal culture inspired Patricia to design this collection after she visited an exhibition of miniature drawings in India that captured the Mughal appreciation of community building in outdoor spaces.

GAN also launched a side table alongside the daybed this spring, available in the same colour range as the daybed. The Garden Layers collection launched last year as the brand’s first venture into outdoor furniture featuring rugs, mattresses, roll pillows and cushions.
