Cruise Alu by ps+a Palomba Serafini Associati: nautical-inspired aluminum outdoor furniture

The boundary between indoor and outdoor tends to be increasingly thin and is expressed in the creation of outdoor furniture with the same passion for details, style and taste that was previously a stylistic code that identifies only the interior. Proof of this is Cruise Alu by Talenti, a family of products inspired by the nautical world, which bet on aluminum as a material of great elegance and versatility. The collection combines woven and padded rope on a solid aluminum base and is composed of modular sofas, tables, poufs, bench, living armchair and dining armchair, all signed by ps+a Palomba Serafini Associati. The modular sofa, in particular, offers multiple combination possibilities, adapting to any outdoor space. The aluminum structure of the modules, made according to the die-casting technique, gives stability and matches the comfortable and spacious seats made of quick dry foam and the fabric upholstery resistant to atmospheric agents. Particularly the technology that foresees the fusion of the aluminum foot in a single mold that gives the so slender and elegant shape of the leg an adequate strength and resistance to loads becoming, at the same time, a distinctive detail that characterizes the collection.

In the designer’s own words
A simple dashboard on which intertwined backrests characterized by a particular volumetric effect build an unexpected image even outdoors. A complex project to manage, many materials, extruded cast aluminum that dialogues with the textile and weave, despite the deconstructed and dematerialized effect that combines comfort and functionality with a refined aesthetic.
