alfresco allaperto collection by ethimo and matteo thun + antonio rodriguez

positioned where design meets nature and creativity morphs into emotion, ethimo presents the ‘allaperto’ collection in collaboration with matteo thun + antonio rodriguez. under the same philosophy, four editions have sprung; ‘montagna’, ‘grand hotel’, ‘camping chic’ and ‘urban’, all of which display the same essence of outdoor living but through different details, color combinations and materials. the idea surrounds the enjoyment of relaxation but in a variety of alfresco contexts, as suggested through each piece’s name.

the ‘allaperto’ collection by ethimo and matteo thun + antonio rodriguez pronounces volumes of dynamism and versatility. its matrix of elements and wood structures ensure that an elegant allure is always achieved, with flexible details then changed to match pieces with different contexts. the designs source a more metropolitan interpretation of contemporary outdoor furniture, one that steps beyond the brand’s traditional mediterranean style. here, the cosy vibes felt indoor are transferred outside with comfort, style and durability.

with the ‘grand hotel’, the lounge armchair, small dining armchair and adjustable sun lounger are made from elegant white mahogany with etwick fiber or two-tone plastic straps. furthermore, the comfortable cushions are upholstered with a waterproof texture that not only functions within different settings but does so with sophisticated style.

the ‘camping chic’ edition references the carefree camping-spirit of the 1960s by being furnished in a living look with bright colors. the expressiveness of the fabric showcases the collection’s adaptability and progressive push for original style. additionally, it comes with a self-inflating mattress that provides much needed comfort for this kind of getaway.

the ‘montagna’ editions reflect the uniqueness of mountain settings



the small dining armchair, lounge armchair and sun lounger of the ‘montagna’ range embraces the unique and magical moments experienced in mountain scenery, through an introduction of more bespoke details. with a natural and pickled teak, wool and cashmere appearance, the seating provides extra warmth with special sleeping bags that can be fastened on. as well, etwick fiber is woven into the design that, as well as creating a traditional tartan pattern, ensures maximum comfort and durability in even the most extreme locations.

ethimo challenges conceived conceptions about outdoor furniture with the combination of materials for ‘urban’



lastly, the ‘urban’ edition blends contemporary taste with metropolitan moods. they present a minimal yet flexible style through a structure of metal, pickled teak, weaves and fabric that can be combined to form intriguing partnerships. these pieces are suited for more commercial settings, where hotels and private lounges can contract their own mixtures.
