OUTDOOR FURNITURE COLLECTION
The special feature of become unique
Pininfarina and Higold launch at Spoga Fair in Cologne Onda, an outdoor furniture Collection. Onda was born to blend in different enviroments and, at the same time, to make them unique. Being conceived for the outdoor, the Pininfarina design team took the inspiration from the dynamism, elegance and purity of the ocean waves, the empty space that is created when a wave is broken, resulting in to a hollow or tube wave (onda in Italian).
We have looked at the magic of nature to give life to Onda which is distinctive and, at the same time, able to be integrated in different environments. Technology and know-how coming from different sectors make it really unique
Inspired by natural movements of waves
The heart of the Collection is the structure, an alluminum band sustaining the cushions and becoming the iconic element of the whole Collection. Characterized by fluid lines – as the ones of the wave – the band beyond being an aesthetic element becomes also a functional element, a rigid armrest that can be used to lean objects. The choice of the materials come from the Pininfarina 360° design experience: the aluminum – coming from the car sector – for the structure , the fabrics – used in the yacths for its resistance – for the cushions. The Collection is composed by a modular sofa, a two seats sofa, a armchair and a coffee table.
Onda is the second project born from the collaboration between Higold and Pininfarina, after the Higold headquarters in Shunde presented in march 2017.
