Rafael dining set and Kilt love seat 01.12.2020
Rafael dining set
Thanks to the exceptional visionary creativity of Paola Navone and the design experience of Ethimo, the dining table becomes a surprising ‘project’ capable of transforming any dining area into an elegant, original, exciting mode de vie.
Originally conceived as a lounge line, Rafael is now also a dining set, with tables in different sizes and small armchairs featuring the same exotic appeal and sensation of wellbeing as the larger collection.
Preciously tactile materials, fascinating looking table tops and details devised to make Rafael tables and chairs unique team to craft a new experience of contact with nature and a new ‘mode’ of al fresco dining.
Statue marble and enamelled lava stone in an intense brilliant colour that emphasises the material and recalls the varying hues of the sea, become irregular patterns for the table tops. The stone and marble are finely worked to give them extraordinary asymmetry and geometry, in shapes that ‘embrace’ diners to explore a new experience of dining in company.
The perfect balance of comfort and design, Rafael tables have matching little armchairs. Ergonomic and comfortable, they team a structure in teak with a surprising weave of Light Grey Round Rope on the seat, embracing the unmistakable eclectic feel that runs through the entire collection. The structure’s Grey plastic supports are an elegant decorative yet functional ‘quirk’.
Strong lines, beautiful materials and energetic colours dialogue in Rafael dining tables and little armchairs, creating continuity with the whole project.
The Rafael dining collection is an ‘homage’ to the contemporary outdoor table, lending personalised uniqueness and creative flair to residential settings and enhancing the most exclusive contract spaces, in an original, refined interpretation of conviviality.
Kilt love seat
The lounge and dining collection designed by Marcello Ziliani for Ethimo sees the addition of a new element: a love seat.
The chair with its welcoming silhouette in a close-knit, elegant weave of stretched rope inspired by the traditional Scottish garment, has been reworked again to create an elegant sofa ‘for two’ that is ideal for adding cosiness and upgrading any outdoor space for chilling and sharing.
With its compact proportions (140 x 70 cm, height 63 cm) and the same comfort of bigger sofas, little Kilt sofa has been devised either to add to other matching elements in the lounge line – allowing the creation of a total look living area – or to stand alone as a separate piece, furnishing smaller, more intimate outdoor settings.
Like the other seating solutions, small Kilt sofa maintains all its inherent characteristics of solidity, wellbeing and perfect ergonomics and is available with a structure in natural or pickled teak (FSC certified) and polypropylene rope in the refined colours of Sand and Dark Grey.
The pieces in the Kilt lounge line embrace the body perfectly for seating solutions that are so comfortable they need no cushions.
Kilt love seat is the new inspiration from Ethimo for personalising and adding a welcome feel to any open-air location, from city patios to seafront terraces, conservatories and chilling or reception areas in refined resorts.
