DE­DON's fur­ni­ture com­bines tra­di­tional craft­man­ship and mod­ern tech­nol­ogy

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - HARPERS BAZAAR ART -

With more than 25 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in cre­at­ing lux­u­ri­ous out­door fur­ni­ture, Ger­man-based fur­ni­ture brand DE­DON was founded on the sim­ple de­sire to of­fer the world good-look­ing de­signs that could weather the storm—in ev­ery sense of the word. Its lat­est col­lec­tion, Dala, is no dif­fer­ent. De­signed by Brook­lyn-based prod­uct designer Stephen Burks, the col­lec­tion—which com­prises a lounge chair, a foot­stool, a sun bed and match­ing ta­bles—was in­spired by the ad hoc and im­pro­vised seat­ing ar­range­ments found in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries. Hence its name: Dala means “to make” in a Sene­galese di­alect that Burks en­coun­tered dur­ing one of his so­journs. With a pow­der-coated alu­minium mesh as a frame, each of the lightweight yet hardy pieces is de­signed to be eas­ily moved around the pa­tio or car­ried down to the beach. Hark­ing back to na­ture with three rich­ly­hued colour­ways of stone, fire and grass, the fi­bres are re­searched and pro­duced in Ger­many, be­fore be­ing wo­ven by DE­DON’s mas­ter weavers on the is­land of Cebu. The 100 per­cent re­cy­clable and sus­tain­ably man­u­fac­tured fi­bres have been tested to with­stand ex­treme weather con­di­tions and up to a decade of UV ex­po­sure. The Dala col­lec­tion is avail­able ex­clu­sively at XTRA De­signs, # 0 2 - 4 8 Ma­rina Square, Tel: 6336 0688; and #01-01/02 Wins­land House I, Tel: 6836 0288.
