Patricia Urquiola interprets the happiness of outdoor life with a high- impact product inspired by the little trampolines found in the gardens of homes in Greenland. Trampoline is a striking and elegant love bed with a painted AISI 304 stainless steel structure and soft, playful forms, perfect for populating welcoming open air spaces, an island of relaxation and comfort thanks to a set of three backrest cushions and two types of additional cushions, all of which in polyurethane foam cased in soft polyester wadding and covered with waterproof fabric.
It is available in two versions, as a low sofa and a four-poster sofa, the latter to provide shade from the sun, and both stand out for the hand- woven polypropylene and nylon rope, mélange or multicoloured, which wraps the base and backrest, becoming its distinctive decoration.
