There is some great design coming out of Spain right now in the outdoor furniture world and one of the front runners is furniture & lighting design company, Vondom. Far from the run of the mill patio sets, Vondoms furniture, pot and lighting collections are pieces of art combining top design, functionality & sustainability.
The furniture is made of a lineal polyethylene material with a low density using a technique called 'rotational moulding'. If that's all a bit high tech for you (as it is for me), then all you will want to know is that the end product is 100% recyclable, UV resistant and can tolerate extreme temperatures over long periods of time, making it ideal for Australia's harsh climate.
I'm loving the new collection called Stones designed by Stefano Giovannoni and Elisa Gargan. Its available in a variety of bold colours (the hot pink would be amazing) and even has a LED lighting option. By the look of the glam images from the catalogue, Vondom also have a very good marketing department who know how best to show off their pieces in some stunning locations. For Australians, the Vondom collections can be found at KEZU.
