Breaking down the boundaries between inside and out, venturing into the open air with a refreshing new, all-encompassing, contextual take on outdoor design, adding new collections from archival and contemporary designers, as well as introducing outdoor versions of the existing indoor portfolio.
Breaking boundaries once more, Pierre Paulin’s pioneering seating concept is moving outdoors. Enchanting exteriors demand dedicated seating to define spaces and create ambience. The sculptural softness of the Pacha Collection has always rewarded the sitter with a level of relaxation akin to sitting on the clouds that inspired it.
The Bohemian 72 Collection brings together Gabriella Crespi’s interest in natural materials, her fascination with stacked sculptural forms, and her curiosity about Eastern cultures and philosophies, honed over years of travel.
The Obello Lamp
Half a century later, with the endorsement of his family, GUBI has put Curry’s innovative design into production for the first time, now as a portable version. The Obello Lamp is an iconic space-age design that will make a strong statement, either as a playful centerpiece or a point of curiosity within any outdoor space.
A new outdoor version of the much-loved C-Chair – a dining chair originally designed in 1947 for post-war housing in France – is joined outside by a little-known Gascoin gem, the F-Chair. This rarely seen design made its first appearance in 1949 at the traveling exhibition ‘Maison Rurale’, which set out to showcase furniture that met the particular needs of life in the countryside.
The boundaries between inside and out have been blurring for decades. Whereas once people wanted to ‘bring the outside in’ with biophilic interiors, or take the inside out by creating ‘outdoor rooms,’ now indoor and outdoor areas are merging to create ‘liminal spaces’ – symbiotic, overlapping zones of threshold and transition where the conventional distinctions between indoors and out are eroded.
Created in the 1950s by the Hungarian-born French master of postwar design, Mathieu Matégot, the Tropique Collection of outdoor furniture captures the timeless glamour and exotic luxury of outdoor living on the Côte d’Azur in the mid-20th century.
The TS Collection is already well known and appreciated among design lovers for its ability to suit any interior and setting. Now, the black-based TS Side and Coffee Tables are getting the outdoor treatment.
