Italian Design For the Australian Outdoors

The Italian made Outdoor Collection from SP01 is an elegant series of chairs, tables and stools designed by Australian designer Tom Fereday.

Made in Italy by leading manufacturers, the Outdoor Collection has been designed and tested to withstand the toughest of environments – the Australian outdoors. With an international Aesthetic, SP01 Outdoor is available in a selection of bold yet timeless colours which make the collection usable for both indoors and out.

Designer Tom Fereday is a rising star of industrial design who, as an Australian, has an innate understanding of the impact environment can place on outdoor furniture.

The collection…

The Jeanette Chair:
With its low-line silhouette, Jeanette is designed for the outdoors with the sophistication of an indoor dining chair. The design has been CATAS tested for commercial use and durability.

The Chee Chair:
Chee is an ornate but contemporary bent wire chair designed for comfort. The overlapping metal wires curve out from the frame to create a striking geometric web.

The Eileen Table:
Eileen is an outdoor table collection with an industrial edge. The design is strongly defined by its frame – a central stretcher rail made from two folded stainless steel sections which connect to tapered blade legs with a perfect disc shaped foot. The unique frame is offset by the gently curving ends of its table top.

The Parisi Table:
The Parisi table’s hairpin legs and tapering waist not only result in a distinctive silhouette, but are also the basis for its strength and timeless style. Each of the table’s four legs are fluidly connected to each other via an intersecting subframe made from powdercoated stainless steel.

The SP01 Outdoor Collection is available exclusively through Space Furniture.
