Founder Staffan Tollgård has been a long-time fan of Ceccotti’s commitment to craftmanship & sustainability; consequentially he jumped at the chance to partner with the renowned atelier. The wood used for Ceccotti products comes from plantations strictly controlled in accordance with the life cycle of trees thereby supporting the necessary recycling & reforestation. The timbers contain no formaldehyde. The brand is committed to recycling wood waste recovered after processing the raw material to produce heat & reduce energy costs. Ceccotti works solely with suppliers that have obtained environmental certification such as membership of the SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) or FSC (Forest Stewardship Council).

Background information on CECCOTTI COLLEZIONI:

Ceccotti Collezioni

The Ceccotti Collezioni story heralds from Ceccotti Avier, a company founded in 1956; specialising in the production and supply of quality residential and commercial furniture to leading hotels chains; such as the Sheraton Group. Based in a small Italian town called Cascina; nestled between Florence and Pisa; designers and skilled craftsmen were drawn from the local ‘School of Art’, and an artisanal culture in furniture making and wood processing grew.

Ceccotti Collezioni

Ceccotti Collezioni has shown the character & quality of a company that has never deviated from its vocation to luxury craftsmanship. Subsequently; it has been able to translate its vision into new products with a contemporary interpretation.

Ceccotti Collezioni

Franco Ceccotti alongside architect Roberto Lazzeroni collaborated on design. As a result they developed a critically acclaimed collection known as ‘Dedos Tenidos’; which experimented with new shapes & materials & was influenced by the eclectic & surrealistic world of Gaudi, Mollino, & Scandinavian designs of the 1950’s.

Ceccotti Collezioni

Ceccotti Collezioni is unique; being recognised all over the world in the field of interior design for their ability to create ‘products of the author’. Original in their constructive complexity and designed without ostentation ; without aesthetic frivolity and ultimately with the scope of reconnecting objects to a tradition and to a history.

We are also pleased to have been able to feature artwork by Tobit Roche as above!

Gandia Blasco’s Latest Collection of Outdoor Furniture Has Landed!

Introducing Gandia Blasco’s latest and most vibrant outdoor furniture collection to date!

As the creative director and president of Gandia Blasco S.A. – José A. Gandia-Blasco has steered the company into producing beautiful architectural pieces for now over 2 decades; a family owned business founded by his father in 1941 that now encompasses brands such as GandiaBlasco, Gan, Diabla and two more brands currently in development. It is he whom is also responsible for a great many of the outdoor furniture collections within those brands.

José also came up with the structural system using aluminium profiles and polyethylene that characterises GANDIABLASCO; highly resistant weather-proof materials that had simply not been used before in outdoor furniture.

This revolutionised the market and acted as a perfect compliment to contemporary architecture. In this interview extract José talks about some of the aspects of the construction system that has continued to evolve whilst exploring new creation possibilities.

‘’ Aluminium has always seduced me for several reasons; one is the colour, but also because it’s a modern material, its freshness and lightness. It couldn’t be any other material. And white is my favourite colour. The mixture of both has always really appealed to me ‘’ – Jose A. Gandia Blasco

Gandia Blasco are renowned for their neutral, contemporary furniture that compliments the blue tones of the neighbouring Mediterranean.

Gandia Blasco Outdoor Furniture

Having presented us with their most recent collection of vibrant chromatic tones we feel that they will compliment beautifully many of their existing neutral-toned products effortlessly. The new colour palate which pairs tones like wine-red and salmon-corals was brought out just in time for the bright summer months and we highly recommend the new range!

In conclusion the Gandia Blasco outdoor furniture aluminium based structure and weather-proof components make these uniquely crafted pieces an incredible addition to any warm summer gathering.
