Dehors collection. Michele de lucchi & philippe nigro.

The new Dehors collection is designed to create an ideal “garden living-room”, inspired by nature and the irregular shapes of plants. In particular, the supports deviate from the usual vertical lines but nonetheless create a solid framework in which each counterbalances the other. The result is a wavy structure that abandons any claim to architectural rigour but offers an unexpected degree of comfort.

Dehors welcomes a naturalistic form of architecture and introduces a new and dynamic logic of comfort. The wide, asymmetrical seats invite the body to adopt an extreme variety of positions, from the most formal to those that encourage greater relaxation.
This is an aggregate system of furnishing, comprising armchair, sofa and chaise-longue. All three pieces blend harmoniously with green spaces, creating an atmosphere of refined relaxation.

The structure is in stove enamelled metal treated for outdoor use.
Two varieties are available. The first version has an aluminium frame completely covered by an artificial woven material made from polyethylene coloured while still in paste form. The extruded material made using this technique has optimal chemical and physical properties for the outdoors, and exceptional resistance to UV rays. The dominant colour of the weave is earth brown, with touches of dark and pale brown.

The second version has a frame in steel treated for outdoor use and is coated with opaque white embossed powder.

All the Dehors cushions are weather-resistant, thanks to their carefully selected padding and covers.

The 100% UV-resistant acrylic fabric covers are available in a range of colours, including brown grey, warm light grey or white, and the seat and back cushions may be mixed and matched.
