Elio, referring to the Greek sun god Helios and designed by Canadian design firm Yabu Pushelberg, aims to capture a universally familiar, fleeting moment in time: a sunset. Inspired by the motion of light reflecting on landscapes and objects, Elio's elegant weaving captures the luminous, silky hues light conceives in the sky at dusk. Elio is characterised by a softly rounded silhouette that draws inwards to create a cocoon effect. The armchair, easy chair, high-back lounge chair and two-seater are framed by natural teak, which supports the seating shell primarily through the back legs that cross the shell. The seats are handwoven in Tricord rope. The rope fuses heritage textile techniques with contemporary materials and solution dyeing to create a material that has a soft touch but nevertheless can defy all weather conditions. The rich gradient effect in the seat and backrest is achieved by weaving multiple colours of yarn into one strand, making each piece of furniture one-of-a-kind. The weaving is available in Linen, Wengé and Moss.
