The Tropicalia collection will be launched at the Milan Furniture Show 2008. Tropicalia's design is based on that of Antibodi but features plaiting. The collection is composed of a chaise longue, armchair, chair with armrests, chair, outdoor bed and a swinging nest.
The geometric frame of faceted steel tubing is covered with a skilful composition of plaiting, alternating solids and voids according to a precise pattern and displaying a meticulous eye for detail. The personality of each piece in the collection changes according to the material used. It may be light-hearted and playful if the plaiting is of various colours of heavy-metal-free thermoplastic polymer threads; sophisticated and luxurious when made of leather (indoor version); simple and elegant with a double plaiting of HT polyester cords in the same colour or two colours.
The coloured versions use three strands in different shades, creating vibrant colour schemes.
