Batyline® by Serge Ferrari













Flat Textil Counter stool with backrest

FLAT TEXTIL is a collection of outdoor furniture that was born from the FLAT collection, designed by Mario Ruiz over 10 years ago. It is composed of a series of elegant and balanced pieces, reissued in their lightest and most portable version. Their structure has been reduced to a minimum and the protagonist is the Batyline® micro-perforated fabric.


The FLAT TEXTIL Counter stool with backrest is an outdoor stool made with aluminium profiles that are welded through a semi-industrial development and subsequently powder-coated in a wide range of colours. The seat and back of this designer stool are made of Batyline® mesh fabric, specially designed for outdoor use.


The FLAT TEXTIL Counter stool with backrest is an exclusive design by Mario Ruiz for GANDIABLASCO.
