The Tropicalia collection features plaiting and is composed of an armchair, chaise longue, chair with armrests, chair, outdoor bed and a swinging nest. A sleek geometric frame of faceted steel tubing is covered with a skillful composition of plaiting, alternating solids and voids according to a precise pattern while displaying a meticulous eye for detail. The mood of each piece varies from light-heated and playful to luxurious and sophisticated, depending on the use of leather, a double plaiting of HT polyester cords or heavy-metal-free thermoplastic polymer threads. The colored versions use three strands in different shades, creating vibrant color schemes.
