The warm colour, the raw materials and the craft techniques, characteristic of Eastern cultures inspired designer Héctor Serrano to widen the SAIL collection originally designed for GAN, the outdoor brand belonging to GANDIABLASCO, and launch his Sail Outdoor version.
The Spanish designer has used an external fabric in place of the traditional wool dhurrie of the previous version to create a fresh, modern and voluminous collection. His design converts this product into an alternative and fun product that can easily adapt to many different spaces.
The result is a versatile collection of comfortable outdoor poufs and a unique design.
