Now that BBQ season is in full swing and staying indoors no longer seems to cut the mustard, chances are many of us will endeavour to spruce up what is set to become the venue for these endless alfresco gatherings; be it a garden, roof terrace, patio or a balcony. (more…)

'FIDA' portable folding mat by Patrick Frey for VIAL

'Unbeweaveable' by Aprro

Admittedly its name is not what you call a very good wordplay but the wingback chair ‘Unbeweaveable’
designed by Alexander Purcell for the US brand Aprro Design is a beautiful in and outdoor furniture series anyway.

Hand knitted polypropylene rope reminiscent of a hammock is woven to the frame creating a suspended seat.

The Italian manufacturer Area Declic took it into production and presented it at this year’s Salone del Mobile for the first time. “The chair’s name refers to a typically feminine activity: knitting” – let’s take this with a wink and notice the beautiful artisanry of the seating and backrest handmade from a striking gradient coloured PVC- thread.
