FOR AL FRESCO MEALTIMES
The garden gets an upgrade with the simple functionality of French architect and designer Marcel Gascoin’s most enduring iconic design. GUBI’s new outdoor collection, now in teak, represents significant innovation for Gascoin’s iconic design, adapting the C-chair for al fresco mealtimes.
For this new outdoor version, a combination of hardwearing and naturally durable teak and weatherproof woven cord, inspired by Gascoin’s nautical upbringin, makes the perfect material choice for high-quality exterior furniture
Proportions have been fine-tuned to maximize comfort and the frame has been carefully crafted with traditional joinery using plantation teak. The seat and backrest are tightly woven from an outdoor all-weather fiber made of an extruded polyethylene and twisted to resemble natural hyacinth woven furniture
The weave pattern creates triangle shapes from all four sides of the seat and backrest, converging at the center of each like an envelope. The woven cord captures the natural look of the indoor version, while being durable enough to withstand the elements outside. Teak’s naturally high oil content allows it to stay in fantastic condition in even the harshest of climates, without additional treatment, developing a beautiful silvery patina over time.
Marcel Gascoin was one of the leading designers in postwar Europe. Innovative and with a strong social conscience, Gascoin’s democratic design connected art with industry and functional aesthetics with rational manufacturing processes.
Even today, Gascoin’s furniture is praised for its simple lines, minimalist aesthetics, and compact modular design that makes optimal use of space.
GASCOIN TABLE COLLECTION
Gascoin’s strive to combine functionality and elegant design is evident in the s-table. The traditional oversized, ornate style is replaced by simple tapered legs, sturdy frame, and space-efficient rectangular tabletop.
