After their debut in the Home Collection, Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby created the Tobi-Ishi Outdoor, a Zen-inspired outdoor version of the iconic round dining table. The design duo are enthusiasts of Japanese art and culture, and the name and inspiration came from the smooth stones (tobi-ishi) used as ornaments in traditional Zen gardens.
The overhang of the table and the vertical trapezoidal bases set at right angles generate an essential sculptural figure that appears to change shape depending on the point of observation. Exclusively made of cement, Tobi-Ishi Outdoor comes in two colour variants: grey and anthracite.
After the success of the indoor collection, the Ray seating system by Antonio Citterio adapts itself for outdoor use with two new seating collections, Natural and Fabric. Both have in common a light extruded aluminium frame, but are distinguished by different weaving and materials.
Ray Outdoor Natural features a ‘rope’ weave inspired by natural Manila hemp and designed to merge with nature. It uses a textilene fibre designed for outdoor use. Ray Outdoor Fabric features a ‘ribbon’ weave technique made of polypropylene fibre that is resistant to both UV radiation and atmospheric agents. The range includes sofas available in two depths as well as modular elements such as terminal pieces, chaise longues, armchairs and a sunbed. The colour range features turquoise to blue, or acid green to Tortora and a bright Bordeaux.
