Blau Dining chair

You are from Valencia, just like the firm GANDIABLASCO. Do you believe your Mediterranean roots influence your work?
“The Mediterranean influence is evident in my work.”
Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

 

The BLAU dining chair has powder coated aluminium profiles and powder coated aluminium micro-perforated sheet, with polyurethane foam rubber cushions covered with water-repellent fabric. Customise it to your taste. Outdoor fabrics are light resistant and have an ultraviolet (UV) resistant finish.

 

Rather than just an outdoor chair, it is a designer chair that combines with all the pieces in the collection, to create your own BLAU outdoor space on small terraces or on large Contract facilities.

 

The BLAU dining chair is an exclusive piece designed by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos for GANDIABLASCO.
