Spring is in the air
Spring is in the air, and with it comes the desire to enjoy the outdoors.
Pedrali’s latest outdoor collections create ideal living spaces with a touch of colour, style and elegance. The springtime nuances of the furnishings designed by this all-Italian company bring light and colour to increasingly popular living spaces: the patio of a historic villa where to spend an evening with friends, a garden in which to enjoy the first rays of sunshine while lounging at the poolside, or a terrace on which to enjoy a romantic dinner while admiring breath-taking views. In such settings, furnishings play a fundamental role, both in terms of style and functionality. Made using robust materials and technologies guaranteeing optimal resistance to weathering and wear and tear, they introduce a sense of refinement and attention to detail, with chairs, armchairs and sofas contributing to the creation of pleasant and relaxing outdoor spaces.
Whether for private patios or the outdoor seating of bars, hotels and restaurants, Pedrali’s exteriors are dynamic and versatile, and offer domestic comfort combined with the wellbeing of life in the open air, creating seamless indoor-outdoor living spaces. Materials and finishes are expertly mixed and matched to flawlessly harmonise with the surrounding ambiance.
Marked by enveloping comfort, the Remind armchair stems from the latest collaboration with Eugeni Quitllet. Its organic forms evoke the soft lines of the wooden chairs of the late 19th century.
Moreover, with its functionality, versatility and universal design, Remind adapts to every furnishing style, both for indoor and outdoor spaces such as gardens, patios or courtyards. The breathable texture of the seat and backrest keeps the chair dry on rainy days and cool in summer, while also endowing it with a light and airy look.
Tribeca by CMP Design revisits the classic 1970s patio chair in a modern key, injecting it with a burst of colour and energy. Handmade with meticulous attention to detail, Tribeca is exceptionally soft and comfortable; the woven cording offers a fresh and dynamic sense of flow and openness to the seat. The entire collection is accentuated by the use of colour, which ranges from warm shades of red, pink and terracotta to cooler blues and sage greens. On the occasion of the International event “I Maestri del Paesaggio”, the Tribeca chairs, armchairs and stools adorned the streets and historical square of the walled city of Bergamo, alongside the Elliot tables by Patrick Jouin. With its elegant silhouette and minimal design, the Elliot table has a strong identity that adapts to a variety of settings. Designed for indoor and outdoor use, it comes in special finishes and an array of bright colours.
Finally, the versatile and multifunctional Reva collection, designed by Patrick Jouin, comprises an elegant three-seat sofa, a lounge armchair and a sun lounger, each marked by smooth lines and generous sizes that evoke the relaxing, dreamy atmospheres of the warmer seasons. Reva embodies the concept of versatility: in just a few easy steps, the comfortable day-time sun lounger transforms into a stylish sofa with soft cushions, perfect for glamorous cocktail parties.
TRIBECA, Design CMP Design
Tribeca takes us back in time with a modern reinterpretation of classic Sixties patio chairs made from steel and woven material. Tribeca is an outdoor seating collection that draws inspiration from childhood memories of summer: a sunlit Mediterranean square where children play, while a woven chair throws shadows of its cords onto the cobblestones. A true icon, revisited with new materials: a steel frame, combined with the elasticity of a profile in vertically-woven plastic material that is remarkably durable, easy to clean and colourful. Handcrafted with the highest attention to detail, this chair is incredibly soft and comfortable and puts a contemporary twist on tradition with its cutting-edge design and quality. The cording is arranged to give a fresh and dynamic sense of rhythm and openness to every version, whether it’s the chair, armchair or stool in two different heights.Tribeca is available in several colours: white, pink, red, terracotta, brown, blue, sage green.
REMIND, Design Eugeni Quitllet
Remind, or call back to mind - a concept rendered in Latin by the word ‘re-cordis’, meaning ‘to pass through the heart’. (Eugeni Quitllet)
Mind and heart have been both essential to create Remind: the heart in its creation and the mind in its production. While evoking the soft sinuous curves of wooden chairs from the late nineteenth century, Remind’s organic silhouette recalls "something never seen before”, a universal shape able to fit into any space and style of decor. The result is an innovative polypropylene armchair, in which each element is conceived to ensure total
comfort and cosiness. The breathable texture makes it airy and even lighter. Made from injection-moulded polypropylene, the armchair is functional and versatile, perfect for both outdoor and indoor spaces.
ELLIOT, Design Patrick Jouin
With its elegant silhouette and minimal design, Elliot table has a strong identity that combines soft lines with sinuous natural forms. The shape of the column, which transforms into an airy base, expresses continuity and attention to detail, while the table's sophisticated architectural design conveys a striking sense of harmony and solidity, making it light and functional. The three-lobed column in extruded aluminium narrows down and splits open to form three feet in die-cast aluminium, which elegantly sit on the floor. Designed for indoor and outdoor use, and available in three different heights, the Elliott table is also offered with a folding top so that it can be stored away with very little space.
REVA, Design Patrick Jouin
An elegant three-seat sofa, a lounge armchair and a sun lounger convertible into a sofa: Reva is an outdoor collection with smooth lines and generous sizes that calls to mind relaxing and dreamy atmospheres. Its clean design is underlined by the four tapered legs that support a thin extruded aluminium frame. The sun lounger has a reclinable backrest that can be lifted up to find the most comfortable position. Two upholstered armrests and a backrest convert the sun lounger into a sofa, once inserted. The soft cushions provided make the comfort greater. The collection is complemented by a lounge armchair for two people with the same formal language and a Sun lounger.
