Dynamic Furniture Inspired by the Sea
Award-winning designer Paola Navone invites us on a voyage to the shimmering Mediterranean Sea with Rafael, a truly unique collection of lounge and outdoor dining furniture brimming with eccentricity and life.
A playful use of geometric shapes runs throughout the collection, from the hexagonal teak lounge chair frames, to the asymmetrical octagonal marble dining table top, to the kinetic cushion patterns.
This geometric dynamism coalesces in aquatic motifs that lend a dimensional rhythm that defines Rafael. The off-kilter alternating slats in the lounge elements recall a well-worn jetty jutting out into an aquamarine sea. Nautical rope is woven around dining chairs, conjuring images of fisherman casting a net in the early dawn hours. The enamelled lava stone table surface is a textured, shifting mirage of blues and greens.
Although the collection evokes the vintage style and charming imperfections of la via Mediterranea, the craftsmanship is accomplished with modern techniques and materials. Grade-A teak, marble, lava stone, and weather-resistant fabric are assembled with sophistication to endure the elements.
Rafael proves that although we cannot spend all our days relaxing by the sea, we can still carry its beauty with us to enjoy in our daily lives.
