Patrick Norguet, 2012

Patrick Norguet has designed an elegant and light outdoor collection inspired by the tradition of wire chairs. The distinctive element of KOBI OUTDOOR is the shell, firm and enveloping, created by interlacing welded steel rods.
The seat, which comes in different shapes and sizes, is fixed on different structures depending on the version: small armchairs, chairs and stools furnish outdoor environments with a unique design.
Completing the collection are practical cushions, shaped to adhere perfectly to the shell and visually blend with the structure, guaranteeing a suitable level of comfort.
