PALISSADE - HAY
Palissade is a collection of outdoor furniture conceived for danish brand HAY.
All pieces of the collection are made of standard tubes in steel, round for the frame and rectangular for the slats of the seat.
This construction allows us to construct a wide range of typologies with a common formal language. From stools and benches to chairs and tables, lounge chairs and sofas - the collection comprises 13 different elements, united not only by their graphical image but also by their common charcteristics: they are strong without being bulky, elegant without being fragile.
Hay conceived the collection without a specific context in mind, and hope it will perform well in wide variety of environments: public spaces, cafés, restaurants, gardens, terraces and balconies.
The vertical slats offer appropriate comfort in outdoor conditions - air and water will pass in between the anatomically designed slats. A additional cushion offers extra comfort.
The production techniques are basic yet precise and industrial- tubes are cut, bent, welded, galvanised and powder coated in different colors.
