RODA’s creative experience continues to put research and design at the centre of its activity. The desire to pursue the same mindful and consistent approach which, ever since the outset, has characterized this company, has led it to develop a well-defined design philosophy, fruit of a high profile technological and stylistic research. The result is a collection of outdoor products designed to create a proper al fresco living space, which may now be furnished with the same attention normally dedicated to interiors.
In the case of outdoor furnishings, technology is obliged to focus on materials: it is of fundamental importance to study the structural elements because design has to tackle the question of resistance; the task consists in identifying materials which, when combined, withstand any adverse weather conditions.
After introducing outdoor upholstered products with the DANDY project, RODA and Rodolfo Dordoni are now presenting their latest challenge: DOUBLE. This is a variegated and versatile seating system which extends the range of iconic interior sofas to comprise a “total outdoor” version, specifically studied, that is, to encounter the growing demand for outdoor furnishings that reflect the typical precepts of interior decor.
Together with form, matter is the protagonist of DOUBLE: aluminium has been chosen for its strength and lightness to shape the structure of this sofa.
As from today, the DOUBLE collection of upholstered sofas, chairs and poufs for outdoors also comprises a new sunlounger of essential pared-down design which underlines the highly geometric vocation of a system destined to remain timeless.
DOUBLE represents the latest design challenge taken up by Rodolfo Dordoni and RODA, which further extends the existing range of iconic upholstered indoor sofas in their “total outdoor” version, designed to provide a response to the increasing demand for outdoor furnishings that meet the tastes and precepts typical of interior decoration. This is the concept permeating the entire collection and its newly released products. The materials continue to play a protagonist role: owing to its lightness and resistance to wear, aluminium is the material chosen to give form to the structure upholstered in a soft padding which, in its turn, is teamed up with a visible 3D mesh endowed with excellent moisture drainage, and used throughout the collection.
Conceived with a view to offering maximum comfort, the sunlounger is fitted with convenient wheels to facilitate movements, and a three-position reclining backrest concealing a useful compartment for storing objects. For extra comfort and relaxation, the bed can comes with a practical slim foam pillow, which can be rolled up for supporting the head or back.
The 3D mesh is available in three colour variants: grey, olive and navy.
