The seater: From the concrete garden collection

The Seater is among the latest furniture pieces offered by Swisspearl, for garden and outdoor areas. The seat, created by the Slovenian architect and designer Tina Rugelj, persuades with its simple silhouette.

The Seater forms a part of the Concrete Garden outdoor furniture collection, designed by Slovene architect Tina Rugelj. The collection reveals another side of concrete aesthetics, transforming cold material into elegant shapes; and thin objects into strong structures. Made of natural fiber cement, it is strong enough to endure any weather condition. The form of the Seater takes advantage of the unique qualities of fiber cement: the thinness, minimum roundness, and strength of the material. The Seater is produced with either a left or right armrest. The two variants can be combined to create a two-seater chair. Seater is made out of 16-mm-thin fiber cement and celebrates the look and feel of raw concrete. Tiny imperfections are visible on the surface and the material gains a noble patina as it ages.

The Seater represents the spirit of the Concrete Garden collection. The Design Society of Slovenia honored the Concrete Garden collection as the Best Furniture design of the year 2013. It was published in several international media, such as the Financial Times, and CNN Style selected it as one of the top ten design products of 2015.
