Smania Outdoor products were inspired by Alessandro La Spada’s creativity. Furniture and decorative objects are inspired by the forms of nature: captivating lines and sinuous patterns create light structures. What seemed empty is actually permeated by matter. This collection is clearly elegant and comfortable, and it combines classical and modern styles.
They are all light and delicate, even the Tahiti coffee tables, in teak wood and ‘whitewashed’ ceramic tops, completed by lamps and lanterns, in both floor and suspended (Chios) versions, and by “EcoSun” bronze (Cook) vases, showing the pure charm of the company and designer.
The Outdoor products, in Ruby Carob, Blue Night and Icy White, rich shades of the Figi Sofa in “EcoSun”, are a pleasant and idyllic journey into the natural world, they evoke the sensation of touching the sand with the fingers, of hearing the sound of waves crashing on the rocks and of being caressed by the light of the moon.
Moreover the woven strip elements on a painted aluminum structure of the Evia Chaise Long and the Hydra armchair, and the combination of high quality Bronze and Pearl fabrics along with the vein details, evoke a sinuous interplay of the vine shrubs.
