The outdoor Borea two-seater and three-seater sofas feature a tubular metal frame with a fluid and seamless design, without joints and interruptions, and an unexpected motif in the end part that rests on the ground. The metal bending processes used exploit techniques typically used in the aeronautical sector and transport them into the world of outdoor furniture, giving life to a collection with an unmistakable style. Comfort is ensured by generous, welcoming cushions, which are not only soft and relaxing but also developed to be sustainable: the paddings are made from 100% polyester fibre obtained from recycled PET plastic bottles, enveloping a polyurethane core in diversified densities. 510 1500 ml bottles are needed to create the upholstery for a Borea three-seater sofa, and 390 bottles for the two-seater sofa.
“Boreas is an airplane. It is an airplane that has landed, an airplane of 2020 but with a technological soul that perhaps comes from another century. It is an aluminum collection, very modern, stackable, a real outdoor product that you can leave in the rain and nothing happens, but above all it has this feature: it looks like an airplane! It gives you the idea of this timeless furniture that the tradition of the twentieth century has moved into the new century.”
