ith a new way of gathering around the table, in a style that is both natural and sophisticated, here is the latest in contemporary outdoor dining. The chairs and tables are the unquestionable highlights of these charming and original spaces. The perfect balance of comfort and design creates flawless outdoor style.

 

  • What it is Rafael by Ethimo, the new outdoor dining set.
  • What makes it special It perfectly encapsulates the idea of all-encompassing design. This new set with outdoor tables and dining armchairs carries on with the pre-existing Rafael lounge line in order to offer a new take on home design, one where the dining area creates an elegant, refined and emotional atmosphere.
  • How it is made The statuary marble and enameled lava stone table tops come in a bright and vivid color that recalls the sea, with deliberately irregular and asymmetrical cuts obtained through expert craftsmanship. Available in two dimensions (264 x 155 cm or 160 x 160 cm), the tables call back to the original Rafael lounge line with its brushed or pickled teak structure. Moreover, the Rafael dining table is available in a third option which is entirely made in teak (bushed or pickled) with a round top (230cm in diameter) that can be accessorized with a statuary marble Lazy Susan. The teak armchairs come with a Round Rope Light Grey seat and a plastic support that acts as a decorative and functional quirk.
  • Whose idea it is Paola Navone, the Italian architect and designer well-known on the international scene. Turin born and Milan based, Paola has always been driven by an intense curiosity for the most diverse fields. She has effortlessly moved between the West and East, leading projects as an architect, designer, art director, event or exhibition curator, teacher and essayist. Eclectic world citizen and dreamer, she has an easily recognizable style which comes from a mix of concepts, insights, and cultures.
  • We chose it because… With prized materials, strategic cuts, and sophisticated details, these tables and chairs aim for craftsmanship that is able to transform and give emotions to the outdoor space. They provide us with an experience that elegantly allows us to fully come into contact with nature.
