Flexform releases its first collection of outdoor furniture

Italian brand Flexform has launched its first outdoor furniture collection designed with the help of architect Antonio Citterio. The newly released Outdoor collection includes sofas, armchairs, tables, chairs and an array of other accessories. To create the collection Flexform called on designers including Citterio, and re-edited historical designs by Mario Asnago and Claudio Vender, to create products for outdoor use.

The range draws on the company’s characteristic design culture, which is rooted in Italian craftsmanship, and using long-lasting materials on products that are “timeless and elegant [with] a light contemporary touch”. “Outdoor space, whether large or small, deck, porch or patio, is increasingly becoming the place to fully enjoy every season,” said the brand. “It is almost an extension of the indoor space and, no matter what you call it, is worthy of the same careful design consideration.”

Two sofa designs are included in the new collection: Vulcano, designed by Citterio, and Zante, created by Flexform’s Design Centre. The Vulcano base is made from marine plywood, while the arm and backrest structures are composed of austenitic stainless steel. The woven upholstery is made of polypropylene fibre or polyurethane rubber and comes in a variety of earthy tones from bordeaux red to olive green. The Zante sofa comes in two different seat depths and can be easily disassembled and stacked for safe storage. The upper part of the seating system is made from iroko veneer – a type of wood that is highly resistant to weather conditions – and sits on a frame made in austenitic stainless steel. The arm and backrests are made from solid iroko and feature a unique design of hand-fitted, interlocking strips of irregularly shaped wood.

The outdoor collection also includes a series of dining and coffee tables. The Zefiro dining table by Citterio has sleek, cast-aluminium legs, with an epoxy powder-coat in white, khaki green, wine red, or a burnished or satin finish. The tabletop comes in a variety of stone suitable for outdoor use, including Beola argentata (silvery green gneiss), pietra del Cardoso, lava stone and porphyry. Other tables designed by Citterio include the Monreale made of iroko wood, the Fly Outdoor family of tables and the Tindari coffee tables that are covered in a woven polypropylene fibre or rubber. A duo of ottomans also feature in the outdoor collection, called Bangkok and Phuket, which are each covered in woven polypropylene fibre and are available in the colours bordeaux and olive green.
