Dezeen Showroom: Italian furniture brand True Design has released a range of minimalist steel-framed outdoor seating that can be finished in a range of colours, which are designed to blend into nature.
The True collection includes newly released outdoor versions of two of the brand's classic seating designs – Leonardo Rossano's straight-backed Marina chair and the curved Not chair by Italian studio E-ggs.
Marina Out features the same clean lines as its indoor counterpart but is rendered in hardwearing steel to withstand the elements.
Its combined seat and backrest can be made from either metal rods or wire mesh, ensuring the final result remains light, compact and easily stacked.
The Not Out chair features a more generous backrest that gently envelops the occupant and a sled base propped up on little black polypropylene feet.
Both outdoor seats can be finished in True Design's extensive palette of weather-resistant epoxy powder paints, from lavender purple to the soft yellow of summer wheat, in order to suit different environments.
"Objects designed to be experienced in open spaces are transformed into camouflaged bodies, where function overtakes trends and aesthetics become totally integrated with the place," True Design said.
