DALA Loveseat by Stephen Burks
First launched at Salone del Mobile 2012, the DALA collection drew widespread attention for its unique design and revolutionary new environmentally-friendly fibre. But 2015 brings what may be the most exciting development yet. The DALA Loveseat makes its debut this year, a sprawling circular sunbed with ample cushions supported by hi-tech Batyline® fabric. Like the rest of the DALA collection, it features an innovative frame of expanded aluminium mesh through which strands of DEDON’s lustrous environmentally-friendly fibre are woven.
The DALA Loveseat features a built-in table and rotates on rollerblade wheels, and can be turned towards the sun or a different view with just a gentle push.
SWINGREST Extensions by Daniel Pouzet
With its gracious lines, generous proportions and inviting personality, the SWINGREST lounger has already established itself as a DEDON classic. Now, the SWINGREST concept has been extended to include smaller, more intimate pieces with the same iconic appeal and thoughtful attention to detail.
SwingMe is a hanging single-seater with a wrap-around backseat; the SWINGREST Lounge Chair comes with an elegant rotating base; and the SwingUs love seat is a swing chair for two.
Each new member of the SWINGREST family shares the original’s organic curves, basket-like construction and extra-wide DEDON fibre.
TANGO Basalto by Richard Frinier
Characterised by its flowing lines and rhythmic herringbone weave, the TANGO collection has established itself as a DEDON classic. The dynamic curves of the chair backs merge organically with seats and armrests, enveloping the body in a protective embrace, while integrated seat cushions ensure ample comfort in any position.
And now, the introduction of a new colour, the subtle shade of Basalto, brings elegant lightness to the collection, and shows off TANGO’s distinctive wave to full effect.
