DNA TEAK, Gandiablasco’s warmest collection
DNA is the collection that best captures the essence of GANDIABLASCO, and this year the warmth and natural durability of teak has been added to the design.
Created by José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales, DNA TEAK will be launched at Milan during the celebration of the Salone del Mobile. DNA TEAK is constructed using teak timber slats, the perfect counterpoint of the aluminium profiles that characterise the entire collection. Inspired on a game of light and shade that references the archetypal Mediterranean window shutter, as well as the works of those oriental architects who use wooden slats and bamboo stalks.
The quality and natural durability of the teak contrasts with the aluminium profile of all the furniture, the favourite material of GANDIABLASCO over the years. Its chestnut tones combine with the anodised aluminium colour and with all the other powder coated tones available within the collection. DNA now extends its potential for creating elegant and characterful exterior spaces for small terraces and large contract projects.
