The outdoor furnishings from the “Dehors Collection” now sport a new, stylish finish. The version in steel treated for outdoor use and coated with opaque, textured powder paint is now available in a new colour: brown. The Dehors collection is designed to create an ideal “garden living-room”, inspired by nature and the irregular shapes of plants. In particular, the supports deviate from the usual vertical lines but nonetheless create a solid framework in which each counterbalances the other. The result is a wavy structure that abandons any claim to architectural rigour but offers an unexpected degree of comfort. Dehors welcomes a naturalistic form of architecture and introduces a new and dynamic logic of comfort. The wide, asymmetrical seats invite the body to adopt an extreme variety of positions, from the most formal to those that encourage greater relaxation. This is an aggregate system of furnishing, comprising armchair, sofa and chaise-longue. All three pieces blend harmoniously with green spaces, creating an atmosphere of refined relaxation. All the Dehors cushions are weather-resistant, thanks to their carefully selected padding and covers. The 100% UV-resistant acrylic fabric covers are available in a range of colours, including brown grey, warm light grey or white, and the seat and back cushions may be mixed and matched.
