With its modern line, Borea is a small, stackable dining armchair in painted aluminium for outdoor use. Particularly attractive is the lower part of the frame that curves slightly outwards as it rests on the ground. The metal bending and curving processes used exploit techniques typically used in the aeronautical sector and transport them into the world of outdoor furniture, giving life to a product with an unmistakable style. Comfort is ensured by extremely soft cushions that are also environmentally sustainable. The padding is in 100% polyester fibre obtained from the recycling of PET plastic bottles and surrounds a polyurethane section of different densities. Borea is a complete collection of outdoor furniture inclusive of chairs, tables, sofas, armchairs and small tables.
“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.”
