Furniture as an open concept for all and everyone: space, time, position and composition. That is the essence of DOCKS available now in anthracite colour as a new addition to the 2015 collection.
Designed by Romero Vallejo for GANDIABLASCO this external furniture collection is organized around its structural system, a key element in terms of its balance and pure architectural aesthetic.
The endless modular possibilities of the collection is based on this structure, combined with different elements such as the seat, armrest, cushions and backrests to form sofas, beds and more complex relaxation areas.
“…an analysis of the different forms of sitting, including more improvised and informal ways of sitting help define the overall geometry of the collection,” explain the designers.
Inspired by the industrial manufacturing processes and references to everyday objects like timber pallets the structure owes its lightness and mobility to its fabrication using aluminium profiles.
Available in three sizes, its construction and detail allows for stacking and makes it compatible with other modules, perfect for creating a wide variety of configurations within all types of spaces.
“It’s based on a modular system which is open to life and living, to different moments,” points out Mariano Vallejo.
As well as the new version with its anthracite coloured structure DOCKS also brightens outdoor spaces with its anodised colour range, white, sand and bronze combined with different colour options for its seating upholstery and cushions.
