Ego Paris Monday 22 Feb 2016
This year, EGO Paris, the French manufacturer of outdoor furniture, has turned to designer Fabrice Berrux for a contemporary and graphic design collection.
The aim of EGO Paris has always been to make life outdoors a special time for conviviality and friendliness, and because Fabrice Berrux shares this same view, he was an ideal partner.
For the Hive collection, Fabrice imagined confettis gathering together to make the structure of the furniture. “These cells blend together naturally as they attract one another to become a coherent whole” explains the designer. “The hexagonal cells of the hive struck me as obvious as it meets the idea of composition which essentially is the signature of EGO Paris.”
The Hive collection is modular. Each piece of furniture from armchair to sofa, stool, loveseat, table and half table, are made in the shape of a cell allowing for various compositions. The “Confident”, the “Conversation”, or the “Indiscrete” are some of the possible ambiance combinations from this range all of which facilitate conversation and contact between people.
The elegant and refined aluminum structures, the signature of EGO Paris, allow for large and comfortable cushions. EGO Paris knows how to give shape to Batyline® canvas by Serge Ferrari which provides backs that are like "a protective screen, yet still open to the surrounding environment,” says Fabrice Berrux.
The cushions not only add a touch of style but are also a source of comfort making the Hive collection even more lively and adaptable. To make each furniture piece unique, the Hive collection benefits from EGO Paris’s large range of finishes, plus a selection of the famous Missoni Home® fabrics.
The Hive collection truly is a hive where people can gather, share and chat all together. Smart, with a real graphic design, the Hive collection is an invitation for conviviality outdoors.
