As I continue to scour the streets of Tel Aviv for inspiration I came across a delightful take on outdoor seating at Primitive Gallery on Yehuda-halevi St. Furniture materials that stand up to the exterior elements are limited, but this line designed by Gaga & Design is refreshing.
Israeli product and furniture designer, Yaacov Kaufman, created these clever outdoor pieces from stainless steel and synthetic roping. The line is surprisingly comfortable and provides excellent support. I love the spot stools which are only about 10″ in diameter at the top. They could easily be scattered around a terrace for extra seating or used as a small footstool. The openings between the roping allow enough wind to pass through that uplift is not an issue.
The furniture comes with several color choices for the roping and is beautiful enough to use for interiors. If nothing else, it makes for a great conversation piece. Distribution of Gaga & Design furniture is currently limited to Israel, Europe and Japan. I am going to have to see if we can change that!
