The sophisticated elegance that distinguishes the interior decor designs in the 2014 collection is inherent to the outdoor series and highlights the continuity and consistency of the brand's own style.
An exclusive new finish- a rich shade of brown- lends and even more sophisticated edge to the Alison "Dark Brown" outdoor seating system and facilitates the creation of elegant pairings with the new fabrics in the art life-scape 02 collection, bringing a stylishly modern note to the outdoor series, as well.
The Alison "Dark Brown" outdoor sofa is raised off the ground on 3,5 cm high anodized aluminum blocks, groove-mounted and stained the same color as the wood, to prevent direct contact with the paving and thus protect the frame from moisture. In the new seating system, even the cushions have been redesigned to convey the air of casual elegance that sets Alison "Dark Brown" outdoor apart. Specifically, the cushions have been made softer, thanks to the use of new inserts in high resilience variable- density polyurethane foam, sheathed in Eco-friendly water-repellent fiber.
Frame: wood, 120x35 mm made of solid kiln-dried iroko. Processed using computer controlled machines, 45° assembly, interlocking joints are assembled and finished by hand. The iroko is stained a dark brown color and then treated with protective paint to lend high resistance to sunlight, weather, and features a 35 level gloss finish. Counter frame in exterior-painted metal. Woven elastic strap webbing for exterior use in synthetic rubber and polypropylene is uv resistant.
Cushions: seat, backrest cushions and armrests in high resilience polyurethane foam and ecofriendly water- resistant fiber. To provide greater protection from water and moisture for the padding in the seat cushions, backrest cushions and armrests, all the cushions are covered in water-repellent polyester fabric. All the components used in construction - zippers, thread – are water-resistant and ideal for outdoor use.
Covers: cushion covers are completely removable.
Base: dark brown anodized aluminium block, inserted via milled groove in the solid wood, with protective rubber pad.
n.b.: iroko is a natural material and therefore does not always have uniform veining and color, so it is possible to find veins or gradations of color that are not all the same; this is not a defect but rather a valuable asset of solid wood. iroko wood may exhibit changes in color.
Rain cover optional: rubberized 150-300 polyester. The pvc contains additives that are designed to offer more protection: anti-uv for exposure to direct sunlight, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, antimite and self-extinguishing. Avoid the use of aggressive cleaning agents, even general purpose agents. 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.
