A composition of wood and aluminium

Created in collaboration with Milanese design studio Metrica, Flows fuses traditional aesthetics with modern elements to evoke an atmosphere of nostalgia and lightness. The concept of Flows is about connecting wood and aluminium and the different feelings both materials evoke. While the elegant metal casting creates a strong and sober foundation for the design, the wood evokes feelings of comfort and warmth. Flows is available in two versions: teak natural and brushed teak nero. The nero version adds an extra touch of luxury thanks to the additional manual craftsmanship it requires.

The shape of exclusivity

The aluminium legs, which give character and lightness to the entire structure, are characterised by a unique design. Robin Rizzini, chief designer Metrica: “Instead of choosing a standard cylindrical shape, we opted for an exclusive form that is crucial to the overall feel of the Flows sofa. Starting out as cylindric shape, the legs gradually change rounded triangles that eventually shift into an oval shape to connect to the backrest.

Infinite possibilities

As its name implies, Flows offers multiple configuration options and infinite setting possibilities. The core concept consists of either a 2- or a 3-seater sofa or an armchair. Different modules – chaises, corners and asymmetrical elements – can then be added to adjust the composition of Flows depending on the layout and need. Wooden side and ‘bridge’ tables – which float between the modules – are also available to transform Flows into a complete outdoor furniture system.

Create your authentic setting

Combine your Flows sofa in teak natural with Torsa teak coffee tables. Opt for a deep-brown emperador marble with golden tones for majestic wining or discover the history of a soft brown-grey Fossil ceramic. Add Solid stools in teak natural for a playful setting.

Looking for an extra luxury touch with Flows brushed teak nero? Mix it up with dramatic lighting and trendy rug. Torsa dining tables are topped with basalt black or marble black for a more luxurious look and combines with Solid armchairs in brushed teak nero.
