Wire mesh R24 stools and coffee tables in a concrete room

R24 outdoor furniture by Paula Valentini for Gandia Blasco

Dezeen Showroom: Argentinian architect Paula Valentini has created an outdoor furniture collection named R24 for Spanish brand Gandia Blasco, designed to have a sculptural and weightless appearance.

The R24 collection features a stool and coffee table made from five-millimetre-thick rods of stainless steel, bent and woven into a geometric structure that can support heavy loads.

"The pieces of the R24 series stand out for their open and slender weave and are surprising for their ability to support a weight close to one hundred times their own," said Gandia Blasco.

"The guiding light of the project was the search for the image of weightlessness of bodies held in space, along with the intention to explore structural tissues."

R24 furniture can be finished in a range of colourful thermo-lacquered finishes and the stool is available with a seat cushion upholstered in a quick-drying fabric.

The coffee table is topped with tempered glass, which is attached to the steel rod table using Velcro.
