Dezeen Showroom: designers Francesco Meda and David Quincoces aimed to celebrate the beauty and resilience of untreated teak wood with the Lademadera outdoor furniture, created for Spanish brand Gandia Blasco.
Meda and Quincoces wanted the Lademadera collection of seating and coffee tables to have a quiet simplicity and coherence of detail that would allow it to blend into natural environments.
“When designing pieces for the outside world, and to be in nature, you have to try to design respectfully to create objects that coexist with their setting,” said Meda and Quincoces.
The Lademadera pieces are made of black powder-coated aluminium and untreated FSC-certified teak wood as it is naturally durable and ages to a desirable silvery-grey patina.
The wood is sourced from Java, Indonesia by Otazen, which uses European quality standards and selects teak from plantations that follow strict reforestation procedures.
The seating is made from Gravidry polyurethane foam rubber that dries rapidly without the need to remove the fabric covers, and the circular and rectangular coffee tables come in different heights so they can be overlapped.
