Alberto Meda, 2009

BIPLANE OUTDOOR is the exterior version of the iconic tables designed by Alberto Meda. The project arose from the idea of creating a broad and flexible range of models in different shapes, sizes and uses.
The legs in die-cast aluminium are fixed both to a central shelf and to the table top in acrylic stone, creating a solid structure that becomes the key element of BIPLANE OUTDOOR. A collection of tables and chairs that can respond in a transversal way to the requirements of outdoor spaces.
