Outdoor ‘Tribù’ essentials
Tribù Illum Lounger
The Illum collection refers to the classical Scandinavian furniture archetypes, translated with updated materials for outdoors. Aluminium is used like sculpted wood throughout the collection, with smooth transitions from crisp to soft lines.
Functionality is paramount for Illum, without compromising on comfort and class however. The soft-curving back support provides an inviting view and seating comfort.
The series was developed by Belgian designers Marc Merckx and Pieter Maes, whose design philosophy challenges the principle of reduction with light structures and strong materials.
The Tosca outdoor sofa is simultaneously warm and inviting, stylish and intriguing.
It was the first time Tribù tapped a female designer to draw an outdoor furniture piece and it is evident in the design: rounded forms, tapered legs and an elegant seating shell in powder-coated stainless steel, upholstered with extra-wide braiding. The material for the braiding is genuinely innovative: foam mousse is encased in a seamless sheath of knitted textilene and polyolefine which makes the material weather-resistant, but also surprisingly soft to the touch.
Italian architect/designer Monica Armani brought her keen attention to detail and sense of geometric perfection to this particular piece.
