'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.
'Framura' designed by Sezgin Aksu and Silvia Suardi
The structure is in painted aluminium, treated for outdoor use, and brushed stainless steel. 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. The structure is available in white or silver colors.

Kaleidos by Michele De Lucchi and Sezgin Aksu for Caimi Brevetti
Kaleidos is the result of a design idea from Michele De Lucchi and Sezgin Aksu, supported by the use of state-of-the-art moulding technologies and techniques now used by Italian manufacturer Caimi Brevetti, and used for the first time in the ‘seat universe’. The three- dimensional texture of Kaleidos smoothly wraps the whole seat without interrupting continuity: this characteristic quality is a technique of genius and is particularly beautiful at the rounded edges, which are completely finished along the whole perimeter. The transparent seats are characterised by three-dimensional reflections and transparencies that change discreetly according to light, shadows and point of observation. The white and black seats have a particularly smooth surface finish with silk or wool effect enhanced by the bending shape. The copolymer used to make the seat of Kaleidos has a high mechanical performance and a particular flexibility which is emphasised by the ergonomic wraparound shape of the seat.
The 4-legged frame can be easily stacked.
The materials together with the design make this chair particularly comfortable. Kaleidos has pure lines, enriched by the very special finishing of the seat surface, which offers three-dimensional optical effects and pleasing reflections; the unusual the unusual texture confers a totally new and pleasant tactile effect. For the seat, consisting of just one piece, a 100% recyclable copolymer with good resistance to chemical agents and pleasing optical qualities was selected, and is available in transparent finish with three-dimensional effect, black with silk effect, or white with wool effect.
