It’s equally suitable for indoors and outdoors and in addition, it’s made from a stainable material. Besides, it has a striking, contemporary aesthetic.
  • How is it made It has a simple silhouette and a lightweight structure. Made of magnesium, it’s stackable, sustainable, space-saving, comfortable and elegant and in addition, it’s equally suitable for indoors and outdoors (when it rains, the water pours from the holes in the backrest, in fact it was especially designed with this feature in mind).
