The collection, designed by Piero Lissoni, presents lightness as an aesthetic cornerstone and its relationship with the environment. Its natural evolution has led to the arrival of the Borea sunbed, where the frame in curved aluminium tubes creates a shape that seems to fly close to the ground. In harmony with the entire collection, the frame can be painted in the same tones as in the supporting mesh. The back can be reclined via the elegant hinges in precision cast steel, functional elements designed carefully to maintain the continuous lines and a pleasant appearance. Two rear wheels lend character to the overall form and play a highly functional role, guaranteeing easy portability. With a generous width, Borea immediately looks like a sunbed aimed at the utmost comfort. Its comfort can be further enhanced with the addition of a small, upholstered mattress 6 cm thick. The mattress cover can be made from a wide range of outdoor textiles by B&B Italia, another element of flexibility that makes it suitable next to every pool.
