Tuile Outdoor Sofa by Kristalia
Designed by Patrick Norguet, Tuile upholstered items take their name from the shape of the backrest and armrests reminiscent of the French biscuit of the same name.
The collection includes: a 2-seater sofa, a 3-seater sofa and an armchair. The style recalls homely atmospheres but they are made of materials specially designed for outdoor use.
The frame is made of sturdy metal with anti-corrosion treatment and powder coating. Comfort is guaranteed with soft polyurethane foam padding, with a metal insert and straps, enclosed in a waterproof covering.
The upholstery is made of Sunbrella® fabric: stain-resistant, breathable, resistant to UV rays and water-repellent.SHOW MORE SHOW LESS

About the designer
The apparent modesty of Patrick Norguet veils a spirit animated by the concerns of perfection, detail and an object well-made. For the last 12 years, the designer has engraved his name on the international design scene with strokes of precision, determination and discretion.
A descendent of Roger Tallon, Castiglioni, and more recent, Alberto Meda, Patrick Norguet considers himself an industrial designer.
He is radical in his search for purity, poetic in his sensibility of products and meticulous in his sense of detail.
His aesthetic genes are more Nordic than Austrian and his temperament is quite French.
It is first and foremost to Italy that he owes his success. Primarily to Giulio Cappellini, who brought him to the limelight in 1999 by manufacturing his instant classic, Rainbow Chair, which is in the MoMA’s permanent collection, and Kristalia, Tolix, Glas Italia, Poltrona Frau, Flaminia, Lapalma, Lea Ceramiche as well as Alias and Cassina, who see in the designer a real talent to imagine quality products that are also commercial and durable.
