Colette Armchairs – Outdoor
2017 Colette Armchairs – Outdoor
Rodolfo Dordoni 2017
Colette “Outdoor” is an armchair with an enveloping shape that comes in an unexpected combination of innovative materials and colors designed to inject a spark of vitality and energy into outdoor living.
The enveloping shape of the metal backrest accommodates a soft cushion that makes the Colette “Outdoor” armchair even more comfortable. The profile of the metal structure is calendered, assembled and welded in more than 300 places.
The metal structure is first sandblasted to remove any imperfections and then epoxy powder-coated to ensure optimal resistance to corrosion and weather.
The structure of the seat ends at the front in a support structure wrapped in cord made from a special braided polypropylene fiber, available in four colors: Sand, Sunflower, Khaki Green and Rust.
The epoxy paint for the metal structure comes in the same shades as the cord Clay, Sunflower, Khaki Green and Rust.
The Colette “Outdoor” armchair is available in two heights and can be paired with the ottoman of the same name.
