Pedrali new collection designed by CMP Design, rooted in the Mediterranean coastline.
Light, sunny and elegant. These three adjectives describe Panarea, Pedrali new outdoor collection designed by CMP Design. The idea behind Panarea is rooted in the Mediterranean coastline, and in the colours and refreshing breeze of an outdoor dinner on a sea-facing terrace, on a pleasant summer day.
An armchair and a lounge armchair featuring a traditional element hand-woven in Italy as a sign of respect for and dedication to Italian craftsmanship.
A woven object always inspires a certain reverence for manual work. A kind of charm for an archaic beauty where utility and the right shape meet, become one. A traditional object transmits what is a pre-existing technique and Panarea wants to be this: a continuation in a modern way of the oldest construction technique ever used by human being tell the designers.
The collection features a wide and curved backrest woven in polypropylene cord which creates an original geometrical pattern and wraps around the tubular steel frame powder coated for outdoor use, as far as the armrests. This use of cord emphasises Panarea’s elegant appearance and optimises the weave, resulting in a double curvature that gives the seating three-dimensionality and graphic rigour, as well as making it transparent and easy to move.
In fact, one of Panarea highlights is lightness, to be intended as both a distinctive feature of the product as well as a recall to a time that seems to be suspended and serene. This feeling is better enhanced in the lounge armchair, which comes with a wide seat and a high backrest whose curvature traces virtually a circular space of relax and conviviality.
The comfort is enhanced by the comfortable cushion in dry-feel polyurethane foam that dries quickly and covered in fabric made from the same yarn used for the woven element.
Panarea comes in a sophisticated and contemporary chromatic palette: from the warmer shades of sand and terracotta to the colder ones of blue and grey. The colour of the cushion can be matched or contrast with that of the frame. It is available in pink too.
