“The BLAU collection aims to evolve the tradition of outdoor furniture connected with architecture and the Mediterranean lifetstyle. An innovative tradition, based on a system of assembly using extruded aluminium profiles. All the different pieces feature this construction system, from the chair to the artificial tree.”
