Two chaise-longues from Levante relaxing collection by Piero Lissoni for Roda organised around a pool

Levante relaxing collection by Piero Lissoni for Roda

Dezeen Showroom: Italian architect Piero Lissoni has created the Levante relaxing collection, a family of outdoor seating furniture that can be neatly folded and stowed away when not in use, for Roda.

Both the Levante lounge chair and chaise-longue are made from teak, which Italian outdoor furniture brand Roda describes as "the greatest wood for outdoor furniture".

"The solid and elegant teak exalts the excellent proportions and harmony of the design, with the result that the Levante collection will appeal to those who want to turn an outdoor environment into a liveable space that is at once functional and elegant," the brand explained.

The seats are held together by stainless steel joints, which allow them to be folded away to save space.

For added comfort, both the chaise-longue and the lounge chair come with matching cushions that can be customised using Roda's outdoor fabrics.

These include a selection of newly released textiles made from an acrylic yarn, which consists of 50 per cent recycled fibres and is produced in a process that uses less water and fewer chemicals than the virgin material.

The designs form part of the wider Levante range, which also includes a dining chair and a matching table for al fresco feasting.
