At supersalone: Poltrona Frau Boundless Living

What does it mean to live without boundaries? Philosophical notions of life purpose aside, I think we can all agree that “boundless” is a tempting proposition.

In the new outdoor collection from Poltrona Frau, “boundless” refers to a new paradigm for outdoor furniture, and hence, outdoor living: “Living without physical or imaginary borders, in search of places where furnishings adapt to the seasons and the various functions of the day.”

The collection thus aspires to blur those traditional distinctions, between indoors and out, but also residential and commercial, public and private.

Boundless Living is comprised of two lines of furniture and one lighting: Solaria by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, Secret Garden by Roberto Lazzeroni, and Sparkler by Kensaku Oshiro.

While distinct, the different lines complement one another through the use of materials and sustainable principles. The palette features natural, recognizable materials like stainless steel and FSC-certified solid Teak. Components are tooled for easy disassembly for recycling or to re-enter the materials stream.

Part of the idea here is that you compromise nothing in wanting to live (at least some part of the day) outdoors; thus, all the furniture has recognizable proportions, familiar volumes, and comfortable upholstery.

Accessories like cushions, carpets, baskets, and tables enable interaction among the different styles, “addressing the technical specifications and complexities underlying outdoor living by inspiring personal and non-conventional use.”

“Non-conventional” applies to venue as well. Poltrona Frau stresses that the collection transcends locale, adapting to seaside villas as readily as to smaller spaces like balconies, rooftops, and small terraces.

Poltrona Frau CEO Nicola Coropulis says that the collection not only transcends inside and out, but also constraints formerly ascribe to outdoor furniture: “It’s about interpreting space in a personal way… with our customisation options, we will be able to meet the needs of designers, offering more than just a product, but visions and lifestyles too.”
