Driade – Tokyo Pop Armchair by Tokujin Yoshioka

The curves of this chair are incredibly lovely.

“the tokyo pop armchair, constructed from polyethylene, was designed by tokujin yoshioka for driade and is part of yoshioka’s most famous series. his creations, easy to understand at first sight, hide cross-meanings and imply a deep mental involvement while translating the original poetic intuition into a concrete ready to use piece. the armchair is available in orange, light orange, green-grey, or white sand… suitable for indoor or outdoor use.”

33.85″ w x 30.7″ d x 29.75″ h

uni form outdoor/indoor collection

Yet another interesting option for outdoor furnishings…and, surprisingly, the stripes enhance rather than detract from the overall design (my opinion of course).

“created by renowned designer david rockwell this series is made of woven nylon fiber making it ideal for either indoor or outdoor use.”

Pix Side Table

Such a perfect little table- indoors or out.

“When designing his Pix Table (2002), Peter Schaffner had four specific goals: The table had to be multipurpose, timeless and space saving, as well as easy to assemble. The ingenious result is a patented table that has only three parts: a plate (or tabletop) and two x-shaped components that form the base. When assembled, the rim of the plate clicks into place over the stable, four-footed base…

The polyester powder coating ensures durable weather- and UV-resistance, and makes Pix suitable for indoor and outdoor use. In less than a minute, Pix can be set up or disassembled and stored flat.”

Available in Red, Green, or Anthracite

Hee Outdoor Seating

I like these so much.

“Inspiration can come from anywhere, and in the case of Hee Welling, it was the interior of a refrigerator. More specifically, the shelves inside the refrigerator caught the eye of this industrial designer…
The durable powder coat finish makes the Hee Lounge suitable for indoor and outdoor use by protecting the solid steel underneath. The coating also provides a surprisingly soft seat, and gives a slight “give” to the surface.”

Available in White, Yellow, or Green.

Made of solid steel with a durable powder coat finish.
All are stackable.

El Ultimo Gritto: K Blocks Table/Seating

Modular furniture can be extremely handy to have. Though this looks to be an excellent size for children, I’m sure adults could utilize the pieces just as well.

“The K Block is a modular object which on its own is a stool or extra seating and when not in use can be stacked in a sculptural way. Combinations of the K Block can be used to resolve different furniture requirements…Custom colors are also availale (minimum order is 100 pieces per special custom color). Suitable for outdoor or indoor use by children or adults alike.”

Extremis – picnik by wynants & lust

Concrete Console

The good news is if you can’t afford to buy this console, you might be able to make one like it. Concrete certainly adds an industrial feel to a space or room, and provides a nice contrast to other materials.

Outdoor or Indoor use.

Terrazzo Square Table and Stools

I know it’s not exactly outdoor weather for most people, but who says you can’t get ready early? This set would look equally good inside as well…

“This black terrazzo table is a classic addition to any patio or deck. Measuring 32″ square, you can easily match it to Napa’s square terrazzo stools (sold separately) or with your choice of teak or metal outdoor chair. Constructed from concrete with terrazzo accents, these innovative items may be left outside in Virginia winters (unlike terracotta, which is guaranteed to crack). Whether you prefer the look outdoors or in, this table is an undeniable classic.”

Table (32w x 32d x 30h), $559.00

Stool (12.5w x 12.5d x 18h), $125.00

Biwing Table by Reform

It’s easy to become desensitized to prices these days- especially since it seems like everything you want is way more than you can spend. So, that’s when you have to grow up and start saving for the things you really want, which means you’ll appreciate them that much more when the item of desire actually arrives, right? All this jabber is just so I can make a point that sometimes it’s worth the big price tag.

“The Biwing Table is an instant classic with its sleek curves and functional shelves tucked below the surface at both ends. Designed for indoor or outdoor use, the A1 is made from a single sheet of 1/4″ aluminum and created without any hardware or adhesives. The minimalist modern form is materia efficient and 100% recyclable.”

Low Cut Stool

I suppose this could be considered the I B Pop chair’s side table and/or coordinating stool, and for the price, it’s worth posting.

“This solid stool or side table (it doesn’t matter what you use it for: It works brilliantly as either.) has a secret. low cut can fold flat in a fraction of a second. Ideal as extra seating you can bring out just when you need it or as outdoor furniture that can be stored away neatly until the weather finally lets you sit outside. When low cut is unfolded it takes up almost no space at all.”

Maximum load 150kg.

360 x 345 mm
