Toan Nguyen, a designer renowned for his technical mastery and refined contemporary sensibility, conceived the WA collection of armchairs and tables as the dining extension to his highly successful MU outdoor lounge system. But with its distinctive lines and dynamic forms, WA also stands alone, a bold and exciting new addition to the DEDON catalog.
The dramatic interplay of angles and curves gives the WA armchair its unique “running” profile — lean, agile, muscular and seemingly in motion. Two years in development, the chair is a triumph of engineering, arm and legs on either side consisting of a single piece of die-cast aluminum. Ultralight in appearance, WA is remarkably strong and sturdy, with a distinct sense of presence. It is available it is a woven fiber version as well as a special sling version featuring a textile seat and backrest. Both in color and in style, the weaving on the seat and back of the woven fiber version recalls that of MU.
But because the profiles of the fibers are smaller than those of MU, the weave itself is even finer. As with MU, the fiber version of WA comes in Lipari or Vulcano color ways.
For the sling version of WA, DEDON has sourced a high-tech synthetic textile with the luxurious look and feel of natural fabric. Made of PVC-coated polyester threads, this remarkable textile is as attractive and inviting as it is weather-resistant.
