Rafael design by Paola Navone - Preview Salone del Mobile 2019
Stemming from an original project for a special home, Rafael is a collection of unusual looking lounge chairs with strong design and material aspects, inspired by the many faces of nature and the evanescence of everyday life. The collection, created to enliven the most exclusive outdoor spaces with its unique personality, ‘absorbs’ its changing shapes from nature and preserves its vital influences, finding its full expression in the strength of its lines and the rough beauty of its materials. Thus design, material and decoration produce furnishings with an eclectic feel, robust and welcoming pieces of enveloping volumes that exude colour and energy. Finely crafted teak, marble and lava stone are combined with elegant fabric colourways, all designed by Paola Navone, to bring the best out of the upholstery.
With Rafael, Ethimo is expanding its range of elegant, complete, and versatile lounge solutions, the result of an ever-perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality. Its refined shapes and materials, together with great attention to detail and durability, make Rafael the ideal collection to meet contemporary outdoor needs.
