Dala Collection
Created by Stephen Burks, one of the brightest talents of a new generation of America designers, DALA takes its inspiration from the improvised seating arrangements of the developing world and the skillful artisans who inhabit it. Possibly the first collection of woven furniture ever to unify surface and structure, DALA begins with a colorfully powder-coated frame of expanded aluminum mesh. Through the geometric grid of the mesh, DEDON's master weavers thread the strands of a revolutionary new ecological fiber. Years in development, the fiber, created from recycled food-and-drink packaging mixed with recyclable polyethylene, is yet another industry first from DEDON. The DALA collection consists of a lounge chair, a footstool and a stool - the latter double as side table as well as a regular side table. Lightweight, portable and very laid back, with comfortable cushions supported by high-tech Batyline fabric, the pieces in DALA sit directly on the ground and are easily moved around the patio or carried down the steps to the beach. Available in three joyful color ways - Stone, Fire and Grass - they feature a pattern of stripes of various thicknesses. The recycled food-and-drink packaging gives DALA's fiber a distinctive luster and a rich, almost leather-like texture that's a pleasure to touch. DALA, notes Burks, means "to make" in one of the dialects he encountered during a project with artisans around the world.

Dala - Available in three sizes in our Stone fiber color, the lantern features an open weave to let the candlelight shine through (clear tubes protect the candles from drafts) and comes with elegant, man-made leather handles for hanging it or placing it on the ground.
