Threefold Architects deliver new coworking space Paddington Works
Inspired by Brunel’s iconic station, the design uses a limited palette of simple and robust materials that give the the space an industrial and civic quality.
Pedrali is no stranger to the world of outdoor furniture – in the early 1960s Mario Pedrali founded a small workshop producing wrought iron garden furniture. These origins are echoed in some of the brand’s most successful collections over the years, such as Nolita and Tribeca, both designed by CMP Design. In their shape, these families of chairs and tables retrace the early years of the Italian company and have been selected for prestigious projects both in Italy and abroad.
Panarea, also developed by CMP Design, consists of an armchair and a lounge armchair, both featuring traditional hand-weaving (crafted in Italy), and uses polypropylene cord to give the seating a three-dimensional effect, as well as making it easily moveable for outdoor settings. Panarea comes in a sophisticated and contemporary chromatic palette: from the warmer shades of sand and terracotta to the colder ones of blue and grey.
Reva Twist is an elegant three-seater sofa and lounge armchair designed by Patrick Jouin, characterised by soft lines and generous sizes and featuring four tapered legs in die-cast aluminium and a steel backrest. Armrests are woven with a flat rope in weather-resistant polypropylene, for a more natural appearance.
The lightweight and stackable Gossip polypropylene armchair design by Claudio Dondoli and Marco Pocci is now available in the recycled grey version, made entirely from recycled plastic material.
Tribeca collection, designed by CMP Design, draws inspiration from classic Sixties patio chairs, revisited with new materials: a steel frame, combined with the elasticity of a profile in vertically-woven plastic material that is durable, easy to clean and colourful.
Pedrali’s outdoor collections are light, allowing them to be easily moved around, and are mostly stackable, to save space while not in use or simply store away at the end of the day. The materials used make them resistant to weathering, salty sea air and sunlight to preserve their beauty and quality over time. And all this without renouncing on attention to detail, for truly pleasant and relaxing open-air spaces.
