Ethimo - Swing alcova, design Patrick Norguet

Ethimo and Patrick Norguet are expanding the iconic Swing collection with a new lounge element; a cosy alcove of enveloping proportions, intended as a safe haven, almost poetic in nature, for enjoying the outdoors in the utmost comfort.

This elegant element of furniture maintains the wider collection’s features of quality and comfort, while once again renewing that distinctive and unmistakeable architectural play of repeated elements in natural and pickled teak, this time with a new stainless steel frame available in two colourways, Sepia Black and Warm White, with even higher performance for outdoor living. The sliding curtains in soft fabric define the alcove and mark out its ‘ceiling’, offer-ing protection and shelter from the sun and creating a secluded outdoor setting which is an invitation to moments of pure relaxation.

The alcove is complemented by a soft mattress which offers the same support and ease of a bed, and which has the option of adding decorative cushions to make it even more comfortable. The new ‘architecture’ evokes solidity and sturdiness while revealing an unexpected sense of softness and a striking cocoon effect, for an element designed to furnish pools, beach clubs, or the most exclusive beaches.

With the Swing alcove, Ethimo continues to explore the more intimate, private dimension of outdoor living, in an ongoing dialogue between wellness, nature and design: the compositional harmony of the Swing alcove establishes a new relationship between form and function in open-sky relaxation.
