Imagine the scenario of designing an outdoor space, a gorgeous patio with a grand swimming pool and well-kept vibrant garden. In this case, let’s take it a little further and instil some minimalist flair throughout our project through sharp angles and ample room for movement. Next up is the task of choosing outdoor furniture. Perhaps a slew of plastic and questionable fabrics comes to mind as soon you think of the usual suspects in retail. This is where Tribù steps in with their prerogative, to offer original and, most importantly, well designed outdoor furniture.
Belgium-based brand Tribù created the collection Neutra to fulfil their prerogative of delivering discreet luxury. Commissioned designer Vincent Van Duysen avoided the pitfalls of patio furniture by producing a considered design that draws a beautiful balance of practicality and style. The collection offers sculptural forms akin to modernist collections, with a a slight 80’s influence with a triangular profile and aluminium for shine. Minimalism with a slight edge if you will.
The collection is eclectic in form but very cohesive, offering easy chairs, armchairs, footrests, accessory tables, and the necessary lounger. The materials go beyond the commonplace, such as seats in Batyline or bent beech wood; making for a lightweight and easy piece to carry—a necessity for the daily life. Fortunately, the designer managed to apply durable and weather resistant materials with seamless lines, making for a splendid collection one could adopt for a summer patio or a chic living room. Bravo.
