Cassina’s first line of outdoor furniture unveiled at IMM Cologne
The collection includes pieces by designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, Philippe Starck and Patricia Urquiola
Released at imm cologne 2020, Cassina's debut collection of outdoor pieces designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, Philippe Starck and Cassina's art director Patricia Urquiola, also includes midcentury icons refreshed for alfresco use.
Fenc-e Nature continues the journey undertaken by Philippe Starck and Cassina to revolutionise the way in which the classic sofa is conceived and to propose increasingly avant-garde materials.
Defined by Starck as a “lifestyle collection of laid-back elegance”, Fenc-e Nature by Cassina includes an armchair, a twoseater sofa, a three-seater sofa and a coffee table available in two different heights.
Urquiola’s love bed with rope detailingwas inspired by a trip to the Arctic. "During a trip to Greenland I noted these little trampolines outside the locals’ houses. This playful object inspired me to design Trampoline.’
The Doron Hotel armchair was designed in 1947 by Charlotte Perriand, an avid lover of the mountains, for the winter sports’ resort in Méribel les Allues and the Hôtel Doron, one of the first chalet-hotels in the same resort.
Cassina's outdoor version of this comfortable armchair was designed in collaboration with Perriand's heir, her daughter Pernette Perriand Barsac.
