Taking Paradise to the Outdoors
Personal living styles have become as adaptable as individuals themselves. Spaces are variable, walls open up, the inside becomes the outside, the outside becomes the living space. Good architecture always incorporates outdoor areas. And the transitions between these areas have now become even more fluid – retreats can exist both indoors and outdoors, while green spaces, terraces or balconies are populated by a plethora of functional, aesthetic and exceptionally high-quality furniture and accessories. Wittmann’s move outdoors has everything to do with Luca Nichetto's PARADISE BIRD collection, which is already a firmly established feature of living room environments in its metal or upholstered body variants. Soaring interest in a weather-resistant version for balconies and terraces prompted Wittmann and art director Luca Nichetto to work on an outdoor version of its unmistakable form. PARADISE BIRD Outdoor replaces the metal structure with a high-quality and resilient composite, while introducing Wittmann's comfortable upholstery into a new outdoor setting and presenting itself as an aesthetically alluring and relaxing year-round place in the sun. For the realization of this project, Wittmann has entered into a unique partnership with the Italian outdoor specialist Ethimo, thus combining its own masterful upholstery craftsmanship with the highest quality and expertise in outdoor frames.
