Structure: metal backrests and armrests, subjected to three phases of preparation: sand blasting, zinc primer for outdoor use (facilitates and improves adhesion of the finish paint) with polyester powder coat for outdoor use in Pewter color glossy finish. The metal structure is covered in a Taslan* braided polypropylene fiber that forms a 24x7 mm. strip. The fiber is available in the following colors: Bamboo, Stone, and Moka. 33 mm. wood base in solid kiln-dried Iroko wood. Worked on a numerically controlled machine, jointed and finished by hand. The structure is available in a natural or “Dark Brown” stained finish. Both structures are treated with a high UV- and weather-resistant protective paint with a 35 level gloss finish. Underframe in metal painted for outdoor use. Woven elastic webbing for outdoor use in UV-resistant synthetic rubber and polypropylene. In order to protect the lower part of the seat cushion, an expanded polyurethane mattress with the same cover as the cushions is provided. Mattress cover removable through a zipper. Cushions: seat and backrest cushion in high resilience polyurethane foam and eco-compatible waterproof fiber. In order to better protect the padding from water and humidity, all the cushions have a waterproof polyester cover. All the accessories – hinges, yarn – are waterproof and therefore suitable for outdoor use. Covers: completely removable cushion covers. Legs: rest on aluminum tips inserted in the solid wood with Pewter painted finish and protective rubber glide.
When a material is endowed with its own expressive energy, its shape cannot help but be dictated by this intrinsic quality. And that is what happened with the Indiana project - an outdoor collection crafted to emphasize the quality of the solid iroko, a warm and versatile kind of wood that is well suited to being turned and sculpted to reveal shapes that radiate the charm of objects molded by nature and by exposure to the elements. The Indiana family comprises numerous pieces – sofas, end elements, chaise-longues, ottomans, coffee tables – with their base in solid iroko, intricate hand-crafted dovetailing and finishing details, and available in both natural iroko and “Dark Brown” stained finish. The elements are raised off the floor on Pewter color painted aluminum caps that are inserted into the wood base. The backrest and armrests are covered in a macro woven polypropylene webbing with a sleek, contemporary vibe and available in the following colors: Bamboo, Stone and Moka. The table tops are in Corian® EC in the shade of Elegant Grey. The structure of the armrests and backrest is in metal with a painted Pewter color finish and is covered with a special polypropylene webbing that forms a unique, entirely hand-crafted macro woven material. The color palette includes Bamboo, Stone and Moka, selected to coordinate well with both the structure in iroko wood and with the new fabrics in the exclusive outdoor textile collection.
