Created by Stephen Burks, one of the brightest talents of a new generation of America designers, DALA takes its inspiration from the improvised seating arrangements of the developing world and the skillful artisans who inhabit it. Possibly the first collection of woven furniture ever to unify surface and structure, DALA begins with a colorfully powder-coated frame of extruded aluminum mesh. Through the geometric grid of the mesh, DEDON's master weavers thread the strands of a revolutionary new ecological fiber. Years in development, the fiber, created from recycled food-and-drink packaging mixed with recyclable polyethylene, is yet another industry first from DEDON.
The DALA collection consists of a lounge chair, an ottoman and a stool that doubles as side table as well as a regular side table. Lightweight, portable and very laid back, with comfortable cushions supported by high-tech Batyline fabric, the pieces in DALA sit directly on the ground and are easily moved around the patio or carried down the steps to the beach. Available in three joyful color ways — sea, fire and grass— they feature a pattern of stripes of various thicknesses. The recycled food-and-drink packaging gives DALA's fiber a distinctive luster and a rich, almost leather-like texture that's a pleasure to touch. DALA, notes Burks, means "to make" in one of the dialects he encountered during a project with artisans in Senegal.
