Diabla’s collections and objects are not designed for conventional or predictable environments. They can range from that subtle piece that adds a special touch to a specific ambience, to a piece that can become the central focus with its mould-breaking design or unusual colour choice. And that is the case with the 356 collection, one of the more unusual and original collections produced by Diabla as much for its striking aerodynamic styling as its new colour palette.
Originally designed by José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales and Pablo Gironés for GANDIABLASCO, the 356 collection has become an integral part of Diabla’s catalogue. And, in addition to launching new designs one of Diabla’s missions is to update the previous work of its sister brands, re-imagining a selection of its designs through a more daring and colourful style.
Made up of a chaise-longue, an arm chair, two side tables and a stool, for the look of its appealing curves the designers were inspired by the first Porsche 356 models of the 1950s. The multifunctional character and modular nature of some of its elements combined with the ingenious detailing of its design make this collection a sure bet in the transformation of any normal ambience into one of style.
Take for example the especially ergonomic shape of the chaise-longue, both comfortable and resistant to intensive use as well as being capable of use semi-submerged under water. And the arm chair which can convert into a sofa by pacing a few modules together. The side tables and the stool can also be sued as poufs or foot rests and include an unusual recess, a shallow cavity, the perfect place to keep drinks or something to snack on, or perhaps a wine cooler, or plant pot… www.diablaoutdoor.com
