Designed by Philippe Bestenheider, Elitre is the latest outdoors collection from Italian manufacturer Areadeclic. The name comes from the Italian word for the wings of certain insects, which have inspired the designer in creating the shapes that define the collection. Designed for outdoor use, Elitre is composed of a chair, a stool, and armchair and two low tables of slightly diverse heights, which can be overlapped. The materials are coated metal tube for the legs and all round structure and coated metal mesh for the seats, tops and backrests. The shapes are organic, reminding of flying insects fluttering their wings. A great visual impact is developed by way of transparency and overlapping. This effect is much more spectacular in the backrest of the seats, exactly where 3 components bend and overlap making a stunning butterfly with its wings wide spread, specially in the upholstered version which creates larger contrast. The individual sitting it these chairs will really feel like quickly developing wings to fly away in the blue skies above. The semi-transparency of the mesh also lives the legs visible, so the pieces have a dynamic look of busy insects in motion. The summer time colors make you consider of deep turquoise waters, sunny skies and poppy fields. A lot more neutral versions in white and black are also offered. Use these pieces indoors and hold the summer time spirit all year extended!
