The 1800 line is inspired by the Madeleine Castaing bench. Made of aluminium, it includes tables, chairs and armchair as well as an outdoor lounge, to give an adjustable ensemble. All seats have a cross back, characteristic of this line. All uphold the highest traditions of elegance in iron artwork, with – miracle of technology – the added advantage of lightness!
The reissue, in 2006, of the bench that had belonged to Madeleine Castaing highlights Tectona’s close ties to the history of design. The "great lady of decoration", muse and patron of Chaïm Soutine, chose this perfectly proportioned restoration bench for her garden. A sign of the times, the bench is now considerably lighter, since it is now fabricated from aluminium. This corrosion-proof material is the perfect choice for the comprehensive range of outdoor furniture to which the bench belongs.
