American designer Stephen Burks introduced his newest works at Dedon this week at its showroom in Zona Tortona. Dala is a collection of woven outdoor furniture that perfectly complements Burks' well-received works of colourfully hand woven pieces made in partnership with artisans from around the world. Dala takes its inspirations both from the "improvised" seating arrangements of the developing world and from the skillful artisans who inhabit it. The woven material is a first for Dedon, a fiber that is a combination of recycled food-and-drink packaging and fully recyclable polyethylene.
