Tape Cord Outdoor Chair
The Tape family of seats, which made its début in 2018, naturally evolves, incorporating items for the outdoor environment that maintain the undeniable elegance of the forms and concepts of the design, and add a few welcome variants that embrace the concept of outdoor living.
The seats become deeper, larger and more relaxing, while the metal frame, in a new outdoor finish, is covered with the wicker-effect cords available in two colours: Mud and Licorice. Here, the couture detail of Tape – the piece of ribbon that holds the feet on to the body – takes the form of a Light Bronze-coloured metal plate. This finish is the minimal common denominator and leitmotiv of the entire 2019 Outdoor Collection.
The family offers many elements, ideal for creating relaxation areas also in small outdoor spaces or on urban rooftop terraces: from the armchair to the sofa, from the Paolina chaise longue to the original open couch – open at the back – from the chair to the coffee tables. The concept of the small tables in metal with Light Bronze finish is inspired by the distinctive Tape detail itself, which aesthetically secures the legs to the crown, inside which the top in Silver Beola or Corian® EC is inserted.
With his distinctive ironic approach, the designer overturns the traditional idea of the support feet that come out of the body of the seat, placing them externally to the structure.
Solid wood with high natural rubber content elastic strap webbing. Backrest is coated in fire-resistant polyurethane foam and the seat in variable density polyurethane foam. Backrest and seat cased in breathable heat-bonded fiber laminated to white hypoallergenic cotton fabric for added softness.
Metal painted with a polish antifingerprint light Bronze varnished. The front legs are protected by a strip of curved metal in the same finish as the base. The back legs have a leather or saddle-hide trim. Adjustable stainless-steel feet painted Light Bronze colour. Black protective polyethylene glides.
Backrest cushion padding in heat-bonded fiber with center insert in polyurethane foam.
Backrest and structure cushion upholstery covers are completely removable in all versions (fabric and leather).
