City is a bustling melange of different materials, textures, and styles. Its eclectic material mix, comprising rope, powder-coated aluminum, and teak accents represents a contemporary Boho Chic aesthetic, but the inspiration behind the form and function of this furniture assortment is the timeless Mediterranean. Designer Christophe Pillet states: "Mediterranean living [is] unconnected to time. It is a universe where the Sun and the Earth meet".
Lightweight powder-coated aluminum frames establish the base for the luxurious seating. The seat backs are woven with rope in a louvered grill pattern. The armrests are capped with bright warm teak wood fins.
City's plump cushions use a Goodside slat method of suspension which utilizes 100% recycled materials. The fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene slats are inserted between two layers of cut, quick-dry foam for increased strength. In addition, cushions are lined with a protective casing for enhanced water resistance. This hygienic solution does not absorb moisture and can be cleaned with normal cleaning detergents without damaging the surface. Weatherproof Goodside slats can be used outdoors all year round.
For fabrics, choose from Group 1 or 2 Tuvatextil (Spain). Group 1 features good oil repellency and Group 2 is extra water repellent.
