10/07/2020 - Cassina transfers its ability to completely furnish living and dining situations to the outdoors with a complete collection for outdoor spaces. Among the new proposals, the Fenc-e Nature collection designed by Philippe Starck that includes an armchair, a twoseater sofa, a three-seater sofa and a coffee table available in two different heights.
 
With the Fenc-e Nature, I created something that doesn’t exist; something between daily DIY and Duchamp’s Ready Made. It doesn’t seem to come out of a factory, and brings humanity, charm, poetry, creativity and Nature to your home”, says Philippe Starck.

The Fenc-e Nature seating collection is characterised by organic, almost primitive, forms and tactile elements like its ample armrest in solid teak sandblasted to create a natural, rough effect. Each seat’s individual backrest is handwoven with rope according to a specific pattern studied specifically for this project; the backrest is also available in natural willow, a living material never used in this context before, to further strengthen the bond with nature.
 
Fenc-e Nature is particularly comfortable thanks to the innovative material SoloSoff® used in the cushion padding: made from air blown polyester fibre and memory foam, the non-deformability of the fibre’s crystal structure together with the elasticity of the polyurethane offers absolute softness. This is the result of long research carried out to find a material adapt for external use that could guarantee the same characteristics as feather padding. The organic form of the die-cast aluminium base has also been applied to the base of the two combined coffee tables with a sandblasted solid teak stave top.
 
The surprising comfort of Fenc-e Nature’s generous seat and backrest cushions is further accentuated by the possibility to adjust the backrest into two different positions: conversation or relax. An elegant gesture through a simple mechanism inspired by Asian architecture and studied to emulate nature itself: a supporting pole in solid teak wood, expertly crafted to appear like a natural branch, blocked into position by two carved wooden pegs.
 
Fenc-e Nature is the dream of a life in harmony with Nature, elegant and respectful. It is not a project, it is a lifestyle proposition.” Philippe Starck
