Nature as inspiration, the hand of man to bring it into the home. There is a special dialectic of nature and artifice that leads everything back to the former, in the new proposals by Ethimo, a company that has made excellence in outdoor furniture its hallmark. And that, now, binds the new proposals around the special thread of conviviality in the dining version, a dimension that enhances the sculptural notes of furnishings designed to activate a sociability destined to be increasingly outdoor, now also at latitudes that were once unthinkable.
Inspired by megalithic architecture, the Bold tables are complements of great formal and material expressiveness. Scenic in their combination of materials, they reveal a free and informal spirit that makes them a passepartout to the ever-changing outdoor scenarios. A sculptural essence gives the tables a timeless style and contemporary sophistication. The sober and elegant design combines the charm of stone and the strength of concrete with the lightness and softness of lines.
The legs are strong and slender, and thanks to the special processing of the concrete they reveal a striking sandblasted effect. The table top, uninterrupted and with a slender profile, is made of natural stone, enhanced by a smooth, silky finish. Stone and cement, thanks to their delicate hue reminiscent of shades of ivory, transform the Bold tables into monochrome sculptures that can be combined with many types of seating, creating ever-changing configurations.
Unprecedented dining composition
The search for a perfect dining dimension led Ethimo to deepen, together with Luca Nichetto, the Venexia collection, completing it with an unprecedented composition with generous and enveloping shapes, also designed, like the Bold tables, for conviviality around good food. The collection, with its contemporary features, is especially designed to furnish exclusive residences with a classic allure. The refined and harmonious rhythm of thin aluminium slats, which characterises it, is also repeated in the new dining proposal, becoming the leitmotif of the entire line. The profiles of the Venexia seats accommodate the body and support it. The round table is characterised by a refined material combination of the stone-effect ceramic top with the aluminium frame that supports it. An immediate perception of continuity enhances the light design of the base and amplifies the tactile sensations of the top.
The colour concept is inspired by the mineral world, creating material moods with a primordial essence. The Limestone White of the structure matches the white of the top, evoking saline nuances. The Mineral Grey, on the other hand, meets the Anthracite Lime colour of the ceramic stone, enhancing the grey veins running through it. The final effect is a refined play of monochromes and materiality that characterises the two table proposals, combined with the fabrics of the armchairs' cushions.
In the new dining vision, Venexia is a solid, robust and visually light collection, which with its contemporary character and classic lines is suitable for enhancing gardens and terraces in exclusive and sophisticated residential and hospitality settings.
