Revitalising open air spaces: new proposals by Pedrali

  • Sponsored content

The Italian company presented its new outdoor collections: chairs, lounge chairs, sofas and sun loungers that are suitable for any residential or contract setting.

Rethinking intermediate spaces – balconies, terraces, gardens and patios – has become one of the most urgent architectural themes in the face of the pandemic. Outdoor spaces can no longer be considered simply as ancillary spaces to houses or public places, but are pivotal environments in which sociality develops. In recent months we have definitely realised the great potential of outdoor areas, and how important their care and furnishing are: efficiency and practicality, aesthetics and refined materials are the most appreciated qualities for dressing these spots.

Pedrali interprets this trend with new outdoor solutions, perfect for both hospitality and domestic contexts, up to the common areas of office spaces. The 100% Made in Italy company presents chairs, tables, sofas and sun loungers characterised by attention to every detail, helping to make open-air environments pleasant, elegant and relaxing. Colourful, light, comfortable and often stackable, Pedrali's outdoor products are also easy to clean and sanitize, as well as resistant to atmospheric agents such as water, sun and saltiness.

Among Pedrali's new proposals we find Panarea, a sophisticated collection consisting of an armchair and a lounge designed by CMP Design studio, inspired by the colours and unique atmosphere of the Sicilian island. The wide and generous seat features a high back and polypropylene cord. The colour palette is sophisticated and reminiscent of the Aeolian Islands: from the warm tones of sand and terracotta, to the blue of the sea and grey.

The Rail sun lounger is characterised by elementary, modern and elegant geometries. The structure is in aluminium with four angled legs in stainless steel; the seat and backrest are in textilene, with the possibility of adding a comfortable cushion in dry-feel foam upholstered with a water-repellent fabric.

Eugeni Quitllet has designed a stackable chair that is a clear homage to the organic, sinuous forms of the chairs that were designed in the second half of the 19th century. In Remind we find neither curved wood nor rattan: the Catalan designer adopts modern techniques and uses polypropylene for both the frame and the seat and backrest. The product is also available in a version made entirely from recycled materials: 50% from post-consumer plastic waste and 50% from industrial plastic waste.

Quitllet also designed the Soul Outdoor armchair, using materials and technologies usually found in the nautical world. The curved aluminium tube structure embraces the seat in shaped teak slats, guaranteeing strength and lightness, without neglecting the aesthetic impact of the sinuous curves and the contrast between the materials.

A three-seater sofa and a lounge chair transform open spaces into refined and contemporary urban living rooms. Designed by Patrick Jouin, Reva Twist is a collection featuring soft lines and generous dimensions. The structural base is composed of four tapered die-cast aluminium legs and a perimeter frame in extruded aluminium. Armrests and backrests are covered with a weave made from a flat polypropylene rope, which resists the weather and gives the furniture a natural look, while soft cushions enhance the comfort.
