Flat Textil High stool with high backrest

“Inspiration is felt in travel, in the streets, in the objects that surround us. For me, being a designer is to live with my senses, alert to everything. My way of working and understanding design is by devising objects that work better and that are honest above all. My interest in functionality is due to my education in the 1980s. I think that for a few years everything has been more superficial and striking: more glamorous in the negative.”
Mario Ruiz

 

FLAT TEXTIL is the outdoor furniture collection designed by Mario Ruiz for GANDIABLASCO. The designer simplifies FLAT’s aluminium frame structure and incorporates Batyline® fabric on the seats and backrests to achieve the necessary lightness. The furniture pieces in the collection can be combined with each other and they work on small terraces and larger Contract installations.

 

The FLAT TEXTIL high stool with high backrest is an original design by Mario Ruiz for GANDIABLASCO.
