Batyline® by Serge Ferrari












Flat Textil Dining armchair

FLAT TEXTIL is a collection of outdoor furniture that breathes the sober and Mediterranean spirit of the FLAT collection that was designed in 2008. This series of flexible and balanced pieces has been re-worked in this lighter version. Its structure has been reduced to a minimum, and the fabric now plays a leading role.


The FLAT TEXTIL dining chair is a designer chair made from welded aluminium wrapped up in a mesh of Batyline® fabric, and comes in a range of colours and textures – you choose.


This contemporary and versatile chair is strong and comfortable and fits in to any outdoor or indoor space.


The Flat Textil dining chair is an exclusive design by Mario Ruiz for GANDIABLASCO.
