Technical Details


Metal, processed in three phases: sand blasting, zinc primer for outdoor use (fosters and improves adhe- sion of the finish paint), and polyester powder coating for outdoor use available exclusively in glossy Pewter color. The metal parts have a laser-cut geometric decoration based on an exclusive Minot- ti Studio design. Backrest and armrests covered in a braided 7 mm diameter Taslan polypropylene fiber, available in two color variations: Light Grey and Dark Brown. Protective polyethylene slides.


Air texturization process (Taslanizing) that provide an appearance similar to that of natural fibers.


Seat and backrest cushions in high resilience polyurethane foam and eco-friendly water-resistant fiber.


The braided polypropylene cord utilized in manufacturing the Aston “Cord” products is made of Flyer, a special yarn designed for the production of residential and contract upholstery textiles, that is ideal for outdoor use. Soft and non-pilling, it is resistant to sunlight, mold and bacteria. Made of hypoallergenic and non- toxic substances, the material has successfully passed rigorous testing of its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It offers excellent resistance to sunlight, salt water, chlorine, acids, sun screens and tanning lotions, perspiration, stains, and wear. Washable at 40° (104°f), it is colorfast and does not require ironing. It is totally recyclable and is Oeko- Tex® Standard 100 certified (tested for harmful substances).


Seat and backrest cushions can be completely removed.

Rain Cover optional

Rubberized 150/300 polyester. The PVC contains additives that provide more protection: anti-UV for exposure to direct sunlight, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-mite and self-extin- guishing. Avoid the use of aggressive cleaning agents, even commonly used detergents. It is highly recommended to make maximum use of the Rain Covers – not only during the winter months – to keep the Lifescape Collection in good condition. Although the materials and processing methods have been carefully chosen for their properties and performance in outdoor environments, weather conditions can significantly alter the original state of the furniture.
