DWR Exclusive Based in Valencia, Spain, Borja Garcia is the founder of a multidisciplinary design studio and a professor in architecture and industrial design. We are a team led by passion, Garcia says of his staff, a group drawn together by their shared belief in research and working slowly to find the best solution instead of the fastest. Evoking the slim shape of a sail, his Stack Collection (2014) is an elegant amalgam of strength and grace. Its noted for chairs with sling seats constructed of Batyline mesh, a supremely hardwearing outdoor textile praised for its exceptional tear strength, ability to retain shape and resistance to fading and mildewing season after season. Due in very large part to this durable mesh from French company Serge Ferrari, a leading manufacturer of composite materials, Stack is more than able to stack up to sun, salt and rain. The collection is rounded out with equally durable tables fitted with tough, low-maintenance phenolic resin tops. Suitable for residential and commercial use. Lounge Chair stacks up to three high. Made in Spain. Materials: Thermo-lacquered extruded aluminum frame; Serge Ferrari Batyline® mesh seat. Measurements:H 34" W 28" D 34" Seat H 13" Arm H 20"
DWR Exclusive This simple chair is the work of Christophe Pillet, who has worked with many luxury brands, including Holly Hunt, FontanaArte and Veuve Clicquot. Whether working as the design director for Lacoste or as the interior architect for the Hotel Sezz in St. Tropez, Pillet has won international acclaim for his high-voltage chic, distinguished by his taste for certain rhythms and time signatures (for which he credits his early music career). After earning his degree from Domus Academy in Milan, Pillet became part of the Memphis Group, assisting Michele De Lucchi. In 1993, he started his own agency in Paris and was named Designer of the Year at the Salon du Meuble de Paris that same year. In recent years, hes been drawn to more modest projects, in which practical character and economy are privileged over any other criteria, says the designer. His Shot Café Chair (2011) is certainly in keeping with this current emphasis, fulfilling the need for a comfortable, compact chair at a great price point. Stackable up to 12 high, this outdoor chair is suitable for contract use. Made in Italy. Materials: Powder-coated tubular steel frame and steel mesh; polyester floor glides. Measurements:H 32.75" W 21" D 19.75" Seat H 17.75"
The prolific architect and designer Piero Lissoni is based in Milan and operates a satellite office in New York. After opening his studio in 1986, he worked on his first project for Boffi, and his client list quickly grew to include Alessi, Artemide and Kartell. He later delved into architecture, building a portfolio that includes hotels, corporate headquarters and private homes around the world. From structures to furniture to accessories, Lissoni works magic with simple, clean lines. He strives to create buildings and interior furnishings that are clean and more or less silent. In 2005, Lissoni was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame, established to recognize those who have made significant contributions to design industry growth. His light, ultra-streamlined Lizz Chair (2007) was named after Liz Taylor, who may not have been flattered to know that the chair has a wide seat and backrest. Still, this comfortable chair has an understated elegance thats hard to ignore. Lizz is fashioned as a single piece out of scratch- and weather-resistant technopolymer material using glass-blowing technology. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use and stackable up to six high. Made in Italy. Lizz Chairs are sold in sets of two. Materials: Batch-colored technopolymer. Measurements:H 29" W 19.25" D 21" Seat H 17"
