at salone del mobile 2017, varaschin outdoor therapy connects tradition and modernity with the ‘summerset rocking’ armchair. created by french designer christophe pillet, the piece is the latest edition to the ‘summerset’ furniture collection and as so, embraces the renowned steel net-structure that defines the bodies of their chairs. the new design looks to add further contemporary elements, visualizing a modern reinterpretation of an historic and sophisticated design.

created for outdoor use, the ‘summerset rocking’ armchair was treviso-based varaschin outdoor therapy’s latest presentation at salone del mobile during milan design week 2017. the powder coated steel grid and legs, which have a protective treatment suitable for marine and pool areas, can be customized in an array of colors that compliment the trendy iroko wood base. furthermore, its flexibility is also shown with its two cushion options. consumers can chose between two small quilted pillows, one for sitting and the other for the back, or for one removable bi-color cushion.

posing a balanced, relaxing and light aesthetic, the ‘summerset rocking’ armchair promotes full well-being in the open air. it welcomes users with a warm, wrapping embrace that delights with comfort, softness and complete contentment. as the user sits, enjoying the sun and reading a book, they seemingly rock gently in time with the surrounding nature.
