Bright outdoors: Furniture inspired by adventure2013:01:23
Paris – Colonel, the design team of Isabelle Gilles and Yann Poncelet, have released Collection #2, a series of home furnishings inspired by camping and outdoor excursions.
Pieces include the Pondy table, made of beech wood and metal, a sleek and stylised version of a classic outdoor wooden picnic table. The Diabolo lamp is wrapped in fabric that closes around the frame like the drawstrings of bags used to carry sleeping bags and tents.
Several products feature tripod stands, similar to the lightweight chairs people might take on a camping trip. Unlike most camping products, the collection is in bright, eye-catching colours in minimal, geometric patterns.
We have noticed more designers inspired by the aesthetics of outdoor journeys since we identified the Adventurism design direction in 2012.
