palissade collection by ronan & erwan bouroullec for HAY





as part of this weekend’s maison & objet paris, ronan & erwan bouroullec will present their new collection of outdoor furniture designed for HAY.



‘palissade’ is a collection made with standard tubes of steel – round for the frame and rectangular for the slats of the seat. the construction allows for a wide range of typologies with a common formal language. from stools and benches to chairs and tables, lounge chairs and sofas – the collection comprises 13 different elements, united not only by their graphical image but also by their common characteristics: they are strong without being bulky, light without being fragile.

‘we conceived the collection without a specific context in mind, and hope it will perform well in wide variety of environments: publics spaces, cafés, restaurants, gardens, terraces and balconies. he vertical slats offer appropriate comfort in outdoor conditions – air and water will pass in between the anatomically designed slats. an additional cushion offers extra comfort. the production techniques are basic yet precise and industrial – tubes are cut, bent, welded, galvanized and powder coated in different colors.’ – ronan & erwan bouroullec
