Indiana Outdoor

Design: Rodolfo Dordoni
When a material is endowed with its own expressive energy, its shape cannot help but be dictated by this intrinsic quality. And that is what happened with the Indiana project- an outdoor collection to emphasize the quality of the solid Iroko, a warm and versatile kind of wooed that is well suited to being turned and sculpted to reveal shapes that radiate the charm of objects molded by nature and by exposure to the elements.

Structure: metal backrests and armrests, subjected to three phases of preparation: sand blasting, zinc primer for outdoor use (facilitates and improves adhesion of the finish paint) with polyester powder coat for outdoor use in Pewter color glossy finish. The metal structure is covered in a Taslan* braided polypropylene fiber that forms a 24×7 mm strip. The fiber is available in the following
colors: Bamboo, Stone and Moka.
Base: 33 mm wood base in solid kiln-dried Iroko wood. Worked on a numerically controlled machine, jointed and finished by hand. The structure is available in a natural or “Dark Brown” stained finish. Both structures are treated with a high UV- and weather-resistant protective paint with a 35 level gloss finish. Underframe in metal painted for outdoor use. Woven elastic webbing for outdoor use in UV-resistant synthetic rubber and polypropylene. In order to protect the lower part of the seat cushion, an expanded polyurethane mattress with a non-slip waterproof coated fabric is provided. Mattress cover removable through a zipper.
Cushions: seat and backrest cushion in high resilience polyurethane foam and eco-compatible waterproof fiber. In order to better protect the padding from water and humidity, all the cushions have a waterproof polyester cover. All the accessories – hinges, yarn – are waterproof and therefore suitable for outdoor use.
Covers: completely removable cushion covers.
Legs: rest on aluminum tips inserted in the solid wood with Pewter painted finish and protective rubber glide.
Top: 20 mm Corian® EC Elegant Grey colored top, flush-set.
N.B.: since iroko wood is a natural material, the veins or shades of color may not be perfectly the same; this should not be considered a defect in the material but rather a quality of solid wood. The color of iroko wood may also change with time.
