The iconic silhouette of the Kilt lounge and dining collection is reinterpreted in a new design that brings to life a hanging lamp, a ‘circle’ of light capable of creating warm, relaxing and charming outdoor moods.

Rotin by Zanellato/Bortotto
is a lounge collection where shape, colour and substance come together to tell the story of a new way of thinking and en-joying places for relaxing in company in the open air. Comprising sofa, lounge armchair, coffee table and pouf with structure in pickled teak, Rotin is inspired by Asian tradition, which sees bamboo as the main element for outdoor furnishings together with techniques normally used in the production of rattan furniture.


Sling by Studiopepe
Sling chair
is inspired by vintage camping in the seventies; the simplicity of its design hides the appeal of a totally on-trend aesthetic and functional personality, breathing life into an iconic element that lends character to any setting. Sling Chair is a ‘free’ ergonomic seating solution that teams all the necessary stability and resistance with extraordinary comfort. Its stainless steel tubular structure comes in various shades of bronze. The cloth, in Elitis fabrics, defines the seat and the many colours and patterns available make different styles and personalisation possible.


Swing by Patrick Norguet
The iconic Swing collection is completed with a new lounge element; a cosy alcove of enveloping proportions, intended as a safe haven, almost poetic in nature, for enjoying the outdoors in the utmost comfort. This elegant element of furniture maintains the wider collection’s features of quality and comfort, while once again renewing that distinctive and unmistakeable architectural play of repeated elements in natural and pickled teak, this time with a new stainless steel frame available in two colourways, Sepia Black and Warm White, with even higher performance for outdoor living.


Tetris by Marc Sadler
is a cleancut linear design accessory conceived for outdoor settings that aim to amaze thanks to unexpected elegant lighting effects. Tetris is both a floor lamp and a handy side table or pouf for the garden. The various tetrominoes in teak fit together just like a Tetris and the light from a chargeable LED light source hidden inside filters through the joins to illuminate the surrounding area.


Venexia by Luca Nichetto
The Venexia collection is rounded out with the new chalky colour that highlights its design. The lounge seating is cosy and comfortable, the low tables flatter an unexpected combination of stone and aluminium. The warm shades of the cushion fabrics provide a link with the earth.
