In lieu of NeoCon’s cancellation, Design Milk has partnered with NeoCon to share brands that were to showcase new products this month. In addition to work we’ll be posting on our Design Milk Works Instagram account, we’ll also be sharing new designs right here as part of NeoConnect allowing everyone to experience the annual show without having to leave their house.
We love the clean lines and bold color palette that Fermob’s outdoor furniture collections always bring to the table, so we’re excited to introduce you to the latest additions to their family. From aluminum tables that wouldn’t be amiss in an art gallery, to a lounge chair and footrest that can be used indoors or out, these pieces stand strong in the aesthetic that the company is known for.
The Bebop family is expanding with the addition of several minimal, airy, versatile tables that can be put to use in just about any room you can think of. Designed by Tristan Lohner and made of 100% aluminum, Bebop tables are super light and ready to stand up to just about every climate condition. Group them together in various sizes for a custom arrangement, choosing from all 24 shades of Fermob’s color chart.
The Lorette collection, a collaboration with designer Frédéric Sofia, blends French garden furniture with a resort style feel. The motifs are inspired by mashrabiya latticework, and similar to the concept of canework in traditional garden gates. The series includes a steel framed folding chair and folding table with detailed perforated steel sheets, with both designed specifically for outdoor use and offered in Fermob’s entire color palette.
Initially created for the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris, the Luxembourg collection has become iconic in its own right. The aluminum series has Frédéric Sofia to thank for reinterpreting the chairs and armchairs that were originally designed in 1923, with a result that combines the lightness and resistance of aluminum with the comfort of curved seat slats. The new stools come in two sizes, a dining height stool and a stackable high chair.
Fermob turned to the GuggenbichlerDesign team to create a cousin to their existing Surprising Chair in the Surprising collection, a steel version called Surprising Teak. They also partnered with Vlaemynck, a long-standing expert in teak, to bring this sturdy, warm piece to life. It, along with the matching Surprising Teak Footrest, have been treated for the outdoors but would look great as an indoor lounge chair as well.
