Born to stay out, enjoying the sun and rain, unafraid of heat, humidity or temperature changes, the Outo collection aims to bring high-end comfort and design out in the open air. As the name of this collection is also an anagram for our brand, it includes everything we stand for; a family that showcases quality, ergonomics and diversity, balanced with perfect aesthetics. The waterproof and uv-resistant material is shaped into a collection of seating solutions that are generous in size, yet lightweight and easy to handle. Well-designed slots allow for raindrops to drain quickly and let wind gusts flow through, functional merits that are also defining the distinctive style of this family. The diverse pieces that together form the OUTO family, provide solutions that actually suit both outdoor and indoor contexts, for example with (arm) chairs that will blend with each other or any table. Or with complementary accessories such as the connector table, that makes it possible to marriage two or more armchairs in a row for an outdoor wedding, an indoor conference, or just a loveseat. And the lounge and rocking chairs are sporting wide, comfortable backrests, which immediately conveys the idea of a leisurely afternoon in the garden or in front of your fireplace. Where the hocker annex side table is then the perfect candidate to place your drinks and books, or simply rest your weary feet. Outo easily stacks, making it a perfect candidate to quickly deploy in your garden or on your terrace. Standard available in white and black, plus an elegant dark green. Other colours on request.
OUTO Collection, design by Sander Mulder
Born in 1978, he began studying design in 1996, sparked by the creativity and ingenuity he displayed as a child. It soon hit home; this would become his life long passion. His successful graduation from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2002, set the foundations for opening his own design studio. Always seeking new challenges and inspiration, he has since steadily been working on a diverse portfolio containing lighting, furniture and interior designs for international clients, and his own collection. His work is proof that good concepts should only exist in symbiosis with a good execution. It investigates new ways to approach the construction, functionality, and aesthetics of everyday objects and spaces. The resulting work is a combination of strong lines and subtle details, with innovative techniques and bold statements, often questioning archetypes and their interpretations by mankind.
