Like the shifting sands of the desert, the Dune collection combines soft lines and repeating patterns in an outdoor seating concept and a collection of four new knitted fabrics designed by Sebastian Herkner. A bohemian influence defines the style, with softness and spontaneity added via specially developed fabrics made with 3D knitting technology. Supreme comfort is achieved using upholstered cushions, quilted blankets and soft pillows placed within and on top of an aluminium frame with a teak base.
Dune is all about the dialogue. The initial idea for the collection was the scenario of having a good time with friends on the terrace – enjoying a cocktail and nice conversation in amazing comfort. Softness and spontaneity are big parameters of the collection, with the requirement for both scale and flexibility defining the need for all classic seating elements to be included – Lounge Chair, Ottoman, 2-Seater Sofa and 3-Seater Sofa.
The designer, Sebastian Herkner, worked directly with Glen Raven and Sunbrella to develop a range of new 3D knitted fabrics specially for Dune that integrate deep dimensions and stretch with an understated aesthetic and incredible performance. The Wave, Dot, Ravel and Tuck fabrics have been designed with durable Sunbrella yarns in a soft knitted construction that embraces and supports for a comfortable and cosy seating experience.
The upholstered seat cushion, quilted blankets and scatter cushions are meticulously arranged within an aluminium frame with a teak base. A new powder coat colour (Brick) was also added to the Gloster colour range to create a warm atmosphere.
