HAY Palissade Garden Collection, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec

In today’s highlight from the Salone del Mobile, I’m falling over myself to get my hands on the latest collection from HAY. I’ve noticed a real shift in the attention paid to outdoor furniture this year, no doubt inspired by the launch of the Palissade Collection, a collaboration between brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and HAY. Sticking closely to their commitment to produce good design made accessible for a larger audience, the new collection features thirteen different pieces to suit a variety of needs and spaces. Instantly drawn to the olive green colour (it also comes in an anthracite and light grey) I love their curved, slatted surfaces, giving a feeling of space which combined with the outdoors blends beautifully, designed to suit natural and urban landscapes alike. Made from powder-coated steel, Palissade includes a sofa, lounge chairs, tables, benches and stools, and in true HAY style looks set to become a design classic in the years to come…

“Since the beginning, it was very clear to me that this collection, these pieces, needed to have a particular aspect, something you could trust. The weight is part of this fact that you could trust a piece like this, you let it in your garden, outside for all the years, you do not care to treat it in a fragile way. For me, these are the types of pieces that stay for a while, and that maybe you would repaint after ten or twenty years.”

From a contemporary perspective, I could really see this collection working in a courtyard space, with matt black painted walls or fencing and structural grasses and palms. Wouldn’t that be something?
