06/05/2019 - Flexform
presents its first outdoor collection that includes seating systems, sofas, armchairs, tables, chairs and many accessories. The collection draws upon the design culture that has consistently distinguished all of the company’s products and the contributions of a select few designers with whom it partners – from Antonio Citterio, to the re-editions of iconic products designed by Mario Asnago and Claudio Vender, reinterpreted with outdoor credentials.
Vulcano, sofa - design by Antonio Citterio
The woven pattern is the distinctive motif in the Vulcano seating system. The sofa base is made of marine plywood, while the armrest and backrest structures are in austenitic stainless steel 316, a super alloy that ensures superior performance in outdoor settings. The woven upholstery is made of polypropylene fiber or polyurethane rubber and comes in a sophisticated palette of colors that range from earth tones to bordeaux and olive green.
Zante is a seating system is known for the ease with which the elements can be disassembled and then stacked for safe storage at the end of the season or in case of necessity. The beauty and innate strengths of iroko – a type of wood that is highly resistant to weather conditions – inspired the concept for a collection of outdoor seating pieces that, in the finest Flexform tradition, combine understated elegance and great comfort. With time, iroko takes on a “weathered” look and its color tends to turn a specific shade of grey. This same shade served as inspiration for Flexform in its selection of iroko wood finishes which, in addition to grey stain, include a natural finish and a white lacquer finish.
Ortigia Outdoor, armchair
Ortigia Outdoor is the alfresco version of the eponymous family of seating elements featuring classic-traditional charm. The structure of the Ortigia armchairs is made entirely of solid iroko, artisan-crafted with techniques that call to mind the tradition of fine cabinetmaking, and available in natural finish or lacquered white or stained grey. The seat is upholstered while the backrest is covered in refined, entirely hand-woven upholstery available in polypropylene cord or polyurethane rubber, both in an elegant palette of colors.
Monreale Outdoor, tavolo - design by Antonio Citterio
Just two years after introducing the Monreale table, Flexform now launches an outdoor version made of iroko wood. The complexity concealed behind its apparent simplicity is evident in every construction detail of the Monreale table. The substantial though unadorned solid iroko legs emphasize the fine natural yet understated beauty that sets this table apart.
Peter Outdoor, armchair | footstool - design by Antonio Citterio
Introduced in 2004, the Peter armchair immediately displayed light-hearted charm and a natural inclination to step outside the indoor arena and make its way to a patio or the deck of a yacht. This year it is being brought back in an outdoor version with thoroughly vetted materials chosen for their exceptional outdoor performance.
Bangkok Outdoor, ottoman
An authentic all-purpose accessory with unmistakable charisma, the Bangkok ottoman now comes in a sophisticated outdoor version upholstered in unique woven polyurethane rubber, with an elegant color palette that ranges from earth tones to bordeaux and olive green.
Functional and uncluttered, the Phuket ottoman is a cube covered in woven polypropylene fiber, in a original range of colors.
Thomas Outdoor, armchair - design by Antonio Citterio
The Thomas armchair, undisputed best-seller from the indoor collection is now being brought back in an outdoor version. With its graceful lines and compact proportions, the Thomas Outdoor armchair is a veritable all-around piece that can play a starring role on a porch or patio, or be matched with the new outdoor seating systems to contribute to the allure of dynamic, personalized outdoor settings.
Moka Outdoor, table + seats - design by Mario Asnago | Claudio Vender
Designed in 1939 by Mario Asnago and Claudio Vender, the Moka set has been part of the Flexform collection since 1985, and now comes back in a totally relevant outdoor version. The striking modernity of the original design, dense with design references to the rationalist movement, is now interpreted in innovative materials chosen for their outstanding weather-resistant qualities.
Its clean design calls to mind the archetype of the chair. The structure of the Dafne chair is made entirely of solid iroko with natural finish or stained white or grey. The woven seat and backrest come in versions made of polypropylene fiber or polyurethane rubber, in an elegant color palette.
Tindari Outdoor, coffee tables
The Tindari Outdoor coffee tables impeccably interpret a theme dear to Flexform, that of the woven design. The structure is entirely enveloped in sophisticated woven polypropylene fiber or woven polyurethane rubber. Hand-woven by expert artisans, the upholstery lends welcoming warmth to the metal, making Tindari an object with unmistakable personality that can easily be combined with any of the chairs in the Flexform outdoor collection.
Alison Outdoor, armchair - design by Carlo Colombo
The outdoor version of the Alison armchair maintains the features of the original design intact, interpreting it in materials that ensure optimum performance out of doors. The curved structure of the armchair is in extruded aluminum, while the base is made of marine plywood. Thanks to their light weight, the Alison Outdoor armchairs can easily be moved.
