We dream of sandy beaches and green panoramas; the sea breeze off the cliffs, the sun that warms a world of patios and terraces, reflecting a growing desire for outdoor relaxation. The mind gets ready for summer: in complete, colorful, functional settings, thanks to the furnishings that formulate their decor. Pedrali has been meeting this challenge for some years now, and collection by collection it achieves increasingly outstanding results. The company’s research in industrial design has spread with ease into the outdoor sector, where the creativity of its designers flourishes in total expressive freedom. The outdoor items combine wellbeing and comfort thanks to the selection of materials and the in-depth study of their potential. The proposals concentrate, in particular, on the world of hospitality, in an ideal balance of looks and functional quality for convivial and collective spaces.
As we await the pleasures of the warm season, Pedrali offers us a taste in a journey through its latest creations, setting a course through the most evocative destinations of the Mediterranean.
We start the tour in Rome, “caput mundi.” Pedrali overlooks the capital from the Fori Imperiali, furnishing the terrace of the Oro Bistrot – the restaurant of the NH Collection facing the square – with the Intrigo seats (design Claudio Dondoli and Marco Pocci) and the Ypsilon tables (design Jorge Pensi).
Then we head for one of the main islands of the Aegean, Santorini, with its breathtaking sunsets. The island’s elegant architecture goes perfectly with Pedrali design, on the balconies of the boutique hotel Enigma Suites with the seating from the Tribeca collection created by CMP Design, referencing classic deck chairs of the 1960s in metal and woven cord, now in new materials (steel tubing and an elastic profile in plastic); the Remind collection by Eugeni Quitllet, on the other hand, furnishes the marvelous terrace of the Petit Palace Suites on the same island, one of the 25 small luxury hotels of Europe.
This collection brings us to the next destination: back in Italy, precisely at Gallipoli, the creativity of Eugeni Quitllet takes the stage on the terrace of the Pascaraymondo Suite Palace. Comfort and a sense of welcome are the strong points of seating in polypropylene with an organic silhouette, echoing the soft curves of wooden chairs from the second half of the 19th century.
Cannes hosts the last stop of our tour of outdoor projects by Pedrali: the bar of Plage la Mandala, by the sea, relies on a refined convivial atmosphere and the furnishings of the Tribeca collection for the outdoor spaces, seats capable of reinterpreting the tradition with a synthesis of avant-garde quality.
