Valencia-based studio MUT Design brings the cheerful, open and social Mediterranean vibe to IMM Cologne with the A LA FRESCA pavilion featuring custom-design furnitures such as the Roll seat developed with Sancal which officially debut at Milan Design Week. “Its atypical silhouette, completely away from the archetype” Explains the creative director of Sancal Elena Castaño to Neo2. “The visual play of the cylinders extols an everyday and industrial object and gives it an artistic look that becomes even more evident once stacked.”

Patricia Urquiola interprets the joy of living in the open air with the Trampoline love bed for Italian furniture brand Cassina. The base and the backrest are handwoven with a polypropylene rope available mélange or multicoloured, a set of lush cushions invite to dive straight into this soft, relaxing island. “During a trip to Greenland I noted these little trampolines outside the locals’ houses. This playful object inspired me to design Trampoline, a friendly haven to enjoy the outdoors in great comfort.” Explains Patricia Urquiola.

Who can resist the rocking movement of a swing? It is irresistible to anyone, no age limit. Diabla, a ‘hell of a’ brilliant design brand by Spanish furniture company Gandiablasco, has launched the Lena seesaw featuring a crisscross pattern in the seat inspired by cross-stitch embroidery. “Since it doesn’t have a very defined outdoor aesthetic, why not having a couple of them in the office or in a waiting room?” Suggest at Diabla.
