rattan furniture collection
This project stemmed from free research work on the rattan fibre, and especially its enhancement through design.
The Fritsch-Durisotti studio developed a language in which natural fibre is combined in a sensitive, lasting and comfortable manner to a light and aerial structure. The curves are voluntarily gentle and fluid, highlighting the sensuality and the warmth of the material.
The constructive process imagined by the studio enables to reduce labour time for production carried out in Europe. It removes assemblies by ligature replaced by a system of staples incorporated in the steel structure. The absence of glue to bond the natural fibre with the metal base thus places the Spline project in a virtuous approach of life cycle management.
Two ranges are available :
- made of natural rattan rushes for the “IN” range
- made of synthetic rushes for the “OUT” range.
The stainless steel structure is common to both ranges.
