Handwoven Rope Details Highlight the Outdoor Anatra Collection

Sophisticated and design savvy, the Anatra collection, designed by Patricia Urquiola for JANUS et Cie, is constructed using textured braiding that wraps the frame of each modular piece and lounge chair. Create your own comfortable seating area, using seven versatile pieces that allow for several configurations.

“Anatra was born from my desire to play and experiment with the scale of weaving, a technique that is very distinctive of JANUS et Cie,” says Urquiola. “I wanted to try and find the perfect balance between lightness and durability, to translate the concept of comfort into generous and embracing seating solutions.”

The Anatra Teak High Back Lounge Chair interprets the collection’s handwoven rope and rich hues with a honeyed teak frame that has a beautiful Scandinavian form. A smaller version of the classic lounge chair silhouette offers up a smaller option for urban spaces, such as balconies.

Sink into Anatra’s deep cushions and rope finishes in either Cadet with Platinum or Cyan cross weave, or Oxford with Nickel or Cyan cross weave. No matter what you choose, the collection’s strong construction and luxe design bring comfort and style to the indoors or out.
