Costiera and Baia 25.01.2023
Ethimo and Christophe Pillet create a new line of outdoor furniture for ‘living on the sea’
Costiera and Baia are the exciting nautical challenge by Ethimo and Christophe Pillet, a collection of lounge elements born out of an encounter between technical knowhow and aesthetic sensibility, designed to bring the moods, unique style and quality that has always distinguished Ethimo outdoor collection onto yachts and large boats and into yachting clubs.
This new range for the nautical work comprises two collections, Costiera and Baia, each with its own characteristics yet sharing the same mood, making them perfect together.
Costiera and Baia make an unprecedented exciting foray into the world of yacht design and outdoor decor, suggesting a open-air lifestyle philosophy that from dry land moves out to sea, configuring the boat as space for living without limits, to be furnished in a refined comfortable way, where the interiors are in constant dialogue with the exteriors.
The new yacht collection is an exercise in tailoring that harmoniously teams aesthetics and function: fabrics, generous proportions and top-quality technical materials come together in comfortable big-appeal shapes, perfect as original furnishings even in “floating” lounge areas with big contemporary allure.
Costiera and Baia come in two seating solution versions, whose very names evoke fascinating seascapes and describe the world of sailing in an ideal union of contemporary design and performance.
Costiera has voluminous cushions and the shape of the seats, apart from the base, is constructed with technical padding that defines the actual structure. Baia has soft cushions resting on a base bordered by a system of fabric-upholstered panels.
The leitmotiv for the entire collection is a single mood enhanced by the selection of materials and finishes from the world of yachting and a range of fabrics that harks back to the true heritage of all things nautical, reworked in a contemporary key. Furthermore, the versatile modularity of the lounge and sundeck elements enables the creation of custom settings to meet any user need. Costiera and Baia together number more than twenty pieces that, mixed and matched together, can be used to furnish spaces of different types, sizes and shapes.
The fabrics are fundamental in characterising the personality of this new yacht collection. The wide stripes of Cruise upholstery used for the Costiera line, is the perfect partner for the neutral livery of Maiorca fabric or the cushions on Baia in the finely striped Navy version.
Baia flaunts all its tailoring genes in a very particular version with a strip in nautical leather teamed with fine Linen fabric.
All the upholstery, with a soft comfortable handle, have properties and characteristics that ensure their performance in any outdoor context or situation and ensure that the furnishings preserve all their original beauty and function over time. The padding is water-repellent and ‘sealed’ with a special technique that means water runs off and is prevented from penetrating them, All the cushions and armrests have easy to remove loose covers and the leather is eco-friendly and specific for outdoor use.
The refined, versatile coffee tables that complete the lounge furniture range come in sizes 90×90 cm and 150×90 cm with tops in travertine, a natural material perfect for use outside.
The base and the structure of Costiera and Baia chairs and the coffee tables are in powder-coated aluminium, in the finishes Silver, which can be combined with Accoya or natural Mahogany in a polished finish, and Carbonio, which instead goes with Iroko polished Wenge colour inserts.
With its new Costiera and Baia collections, Ethimo creates a point of encounter between the worlds of sailing and outdoor decor, generating surprising new feel-good scenarios that recall and rework the timeless elegance of a sixties nautical vibe in a contemporary key.
In addition to playing a leading role on large boats, Costiera and Baia can also be used in the most exclusive of contract settings and yachting clubs or in elegant residential projects.
