Harry & Camila: He is Dutch and she is Chilean but grown up in Mexico. Free northern European spirit and Latin passion combine to create uniquely inspired designs.
This couple is always on the move, both physically and mentally, in the design world: from Milan to Barcelona, from interiors to outdoor areas, the latter is one of their specializations.
This field of application stimulates the mind to wander among technologies and materials, looking for aesthetically simple solutions, which also produce refined results and provide the highest resistance and comfort.
The Rest collection was created thanks to the initial success of the first prototype presented at the NOW! Design à vivre fair in Paris, in early 2009, leading to the current collection of outdoor furnishing products. The special feature of Rest is its upholstery.
It was created to provide a natural sensation to the touch almost like the one offered by cotton fabric, despite the use of polyester, a highly resilient material that resists the most extreme climatic conditions.
This raw material of synthetic origin is given a surface abrasion treatment that provides a warm and attractive “feel of cotton”, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the product. Moreover, the polyester straps and ropes are interlaced by hand to create products with genuine craftsmanship.
Just think that to upholster a chaise longue in the Rest collection, it is necessary to patiently interlace 400 metres of polyester yarn, the equivalent length of an entire athletics track: this is an achievement in manual manipulation for a product with definite contemporary charm.
Rest is a complete collection for the most enjoyable moments in life: those we spend outdoors, in the garden, on the terrace, around a swimming pool or overlooking a magnificent landscape, without doing hardly anything but enjoying a rest for the mind and body, the sweet sensations of nature and the company of the people we love.
All this, with absolutely minimalist design, the ultimate expression of a formal subtraction process, which adds aesthetic and functional value to each item in the collection: chairs and lounge chairs with or without armrests, a chaise longue and loungers.
The first two products are available in a polyester rope or strap version whereas the lounger is only available in a strap version. This upholstery, which offers a special combination of technology and craftsmanship with tactile and visual appeal, comes in four colours inspired by nature (beige, anthracite grey, black or brown).
These colours can be matched as required with the colour of the frame (aluminium, white, black or anthracite grey) in resistant, recyclable aluminium, with an epoxy lacquer finish that resists any climatic condition: sun, rain or damp.
