PALISSADE LOUNGE SOFA HOT GALVANISED / Story
Designed by French brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the hot-dip galvanised range was developed to supplement the existing Palissade collection of outdoor furniture. United by a common principle of symmetrical geometry, the collection is engineered to reproduce the same visual simplicity and core strength throughout. Designed in colour and form to integrate effortlessly into a natural landscape or urban setting, Palissade is intended to be used over a longer period of time and become more beautiful over the years. The furniture’s longevity is greatly extended by the hot dip galvanisation process, where the steel frames are dipped in molten zinc, forming a resilient coating over the entire steel surface, protecting against corrosion and offering a maintenance-free finish. The collection is particularly suited to outdoor cafés and restaurants, public gardens or urban spaces.
Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec the Paris-based design brothers from Brittany have been working together since 1998. Ronan is a graduate of the École Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and Erwan attended the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts in Cergy before starting their own studio.They have transformed the design industry and offered new perspectives of materiality and purpose. For HAY, they have designed the Palissade Collection, Copenhague Collection, Can Sofa, Élémentaire Chair, Passerelle Table and Pier System.
