Rain Collection by Tord Boontje

Rain Chair and Rain Table constitute an alternative way of working both metal and sheet metal. They have a tubular steel structure and plates of perforated sheet metal that are laser decorated with delicate images and natural scenes characteristic of Tord Boontje’s work.


The shapes are a contemporary reworking of the classic wrought iron garden furniture, embellished and made lighter by the laser flower working of the surfaces. Rain Collection is a lightweight, delicate and refined set of furniture that looks to the future.


The products have been devised for outdoors but can also be used indoors, also being a good proposal for contract furnishing.
