A fascinating tale of weaving by Ethimo and Studio Zanellato/Bortotto

Ethimo and Studio Zanellato/Bortotto have designed Patio, a new line of outdoor furnishings that stand out for their creative use of weaving teamed with the natural beauty of teak.

Patio is a lounge collection with welcoming shapes and a cocoon function, conceived to hug the body in a comfortable embrace. Its name and special arched weave recall the traditional inner patios so typical of Spanish architecture, where porticoes and loggias housed the various rooms in the house, opening out onto the uncovered courtyard with pools and fountains decorating the garden. A welcoming place that brought the indoors outside.

This particular pattern, which features on all the elements in the collection, brings to mind the art of weaving typical in the east. An ancient tradition, still today used to create baskets, trays, and everyday objects.

'The Patio collection,' explains Studio Zanellato/Bortotto, 'stems from our passion for the variety of weaves and patterns discovered on our travels. We designed a series of motifs as 3D surfaces that could become the decoration and structure of a series of outdoor seating elements. The latter become true frames in wood and teak into which skilled craftsmen weave close patterns based on our suggestions, tests, and inspirations, gathered with this new project in mind for Ethimo.'

Patio is a big, complete collection, made up of lounge and dining elements.

The lounge range includes an armchair, three-seater sofa, daybed, and coffee table with enamelled lava stone top, in the colours fog or moss green. All the pieces feature the elegant weave on frames in light grey outdoor rope and an unusual arched weaving that stands out in the soft lagoon blue colour. The seat cushions, large and soft in texture, come in shades of sand and sea, while the decorative ones, designed to add extra comfort, are in a soft fabric in the shades of Mediterranean flowers.

The lounge section of the Patio collection is rounded out by a comfy hammock for chilling in the open air.

Patio is a new experience of relaxation, wellbeing, and conviviality in the open air, the ideal collection for furnishing residential spaces with personality and a complete range for enhancing contract hospitality settings.
