This thing is fresh! So fresh that it was just presented at the Salone del Mobile 2012 from Milan. This product is Stephen Burks’s creation, one of the most talented designers from America. Some say that DALA is the first collection of woven furniture that unifies surface and structure, all we know is that this collection approaches new ideas introducing to the public innovative and stylish furniture but this doesn’t out by just that. Under the colorfully powder-coated frame of extruded aluminum mesh there is a special ecological fabric.
This fabric took years in research and development and is being made from recycled food-and-drink packaging mixed with recyclable polyethylene; an industrial first for Dedon company. The whole DALA collection made like this consists of a lounge chair, an ottoman and a stool that doubles very well as side table or as a single regular table. The entire collection is characterized by lightweight, portability and comfort.
The fact that these items are made from materials like aluminum and strong synthetic fibers, makes the entire collection very easy to move from the patio to the nearby beach. To better blend into various environments the producer made this available in three joyful color schemes: sea, fire and grass which feature a pattern of stripes of various thicknesses. That special fabric I was telling you about has kind of a distinctive luster, an almost leather-like texture making it very pleasant to touch.
