'Framura' by De Padova

'Framura' by De Padova

Together with the Turkish designer Sezgin Aksu the Italian Silia Suardi designed this serie of outdoor furniture for De Padova. It is composed of a chair, a hassock, a rocking chair, a nest and a sun cot – which admittedly receives a certain charm by its mechanical and puristic camp bed – look.

All cushions are filled with polyester fiber, with semi-rigid insert in the lower part where they make contact with the structure. They are covered in cotton fabric which is treated for outdoor use.

'Swa' by Setsu and Shinobu Ito

This year the Italian manufacturer Fornasarig presented ‘Swa’ a pretty Scandinavian appearing family of wooden lounge chairs designed by the Japanese Setsu and Shinobu Ito. The roofed version, a cell dedicated to individual relax, is equipped with side and upper curtains that protect from the wind and the sun turning the project into a shelter, a personal and private nest. Beside this perimeter, a small table suggests the same proportions declining the same language.

'Plateau' by Erik Magnussen for Engelbrechts

Erik Magnussen´s lounge chair was a challenge for the Danish manufacturer Engelbrechts, for whom he designed it for: even though the seat is quite deep and the shape is pretty complex, the cover consists of only two pieces of textile or leather, one for the inside of the seat and backrest and one for the outside. This has led to new production processes that minimise sewing.

The wide armrest, which gave the chair its name ‘Plateau’, offers enough space for drinks, remote controls or even a laptop.
