09/02/2017 - SP01  presents a selection of their new outdoor collection as part of Australian designer, Tom Fereday’s stand.

SP01 Outdoor is an elegant series of chairs, tables and stools, designed by Australian designer Tom Fereday. Made in Italy by leading manufacturers, the collection was designed and tested to withstand the toughest of environments – the Australian outdoors. Following the success of its launch collection in February 2016, the team at SP01 have worked with Australian designer Tom Fereday for their second collection, SP01 Outdoor. SP01 Outdoor Collection

Fereday is a rising star in industrial design and was an ideal choice for designing this collection. He worked on a diverse range of projects and as an Australian has an innate understanding the impact environment can have on outdoor furniture. “Proximity to the sea and exposure all year round to the elements provides challenges for furniture to survive, so having an Australian designer work on the collection brings a feeling of confidence. We then spent an enormous amount of time making sure the manufacturing process exceeded international standards,” says Matt Lorrain, SP01’s Head of Product Development and Design. 

As with the original collection, SP01 Outdoor is 100% manufactured in Italy by leading manufacturers. SP01 has taken extraordinary steps to ensure the product is superior in quality. For example, salt mist testing for this collection was done for 1500 hours. To put this in context, 800 hours is the standard test for the automotive panels for many car brands. SP01 Outdoor has a similar design approach to the launch collection. At a glance it is pared back and minimal, yet upon closer inspection each piece has a refined detailing.

This collection focuses a lot on metal wire bending. The metal wire is then beautifully matched with a natural earthy material palette including marble and timber.  In the chair collection, the beauty of the wire bending process is that the material creates not only a visual intricacy, they are also the basis for the chairs’ functional comfort and strength. The decorative quality reminds of a fine rope and it is also the result of designing for comfort. The wire bent pieces don wonderful sinuous silhouettes and sophisticated details. They can only be made by a world class manufacturer since with a simple design means there is nowhere to hide imperfections.

Designed with an international taste, SP01 Outdoor is available in a selection of bold yet timeless colours which make the collection usable for both indoors and out.
