or Call to Order

Flex­i­bil­ity, light­ness, and ease are distinc­tive to landed airplanes and may also describe the Borea Outdoor Chaise by Pierro Lissoni — the tubular aluminum frame creates a shape that seems to fly close to the ground. Thanks to this curved base, the elon­gated sunbed has a stream­lined appear­ance without visible joints. Preci­sion cast steel hinges allow the chaise to main­tain a contin­u­ous line whether posi­tioned upright or fully reclined. Two large rear wheels anchor the bed, adding char­ac­ter and guar­an­tee­ing easy porta­bil­ity. Like the rest of the collec­tion, the frame comes in a painted Tortora color or white corre­spond­ing with the support­ing mesh. The option of even greater comfort is avail­able with the addi­tion of a small, uphol­stered mattress 6 cm thick. The mattress cover can be made from a wide range of outdoor textiles by B&B Italia, another element of flex­i­bil­ity that makes it suit­able next to every pool.

Piero Lissoni

Italy

Industrial but playful might sound like a contradiction, but in the hands of Piero Lissoni, it makes perfect sense. The Italian architect and designer has become one of the most accomplished of his generation, with collaborations with everyone from Alessi to Flos to Tecno. After training as an architect at the prestigious Politecnico di Milano University, Lissoni formed his own firm to create witty takes on modernism’s clean lines.

In 1996, he launched a visual communication agency, Graph.x, followed 17 years later by Lissoni Architettura, which handles interior design projects. But Lissoni’s furnishings really show off his charm: his Otto seating system for Cassina, named for the way the numeral is pronounced in Italian, tosses a titular number of comfy cushions into a slim aluminum rectangle for a perfect blend of hard and soft. And his Extrasoft system for Living Divani tosses away the frame entirely. It’s a chic take on the kid’s bedroom favorite, the beanbag, but with a lifetime’s worth of possible arrangements.
