COLLECTION DEAN

Innovative technology meets timeless design in DEAN, a collection of chairs so sophisticated and refined they could only be the work of Jean-Marie Massaud. DEAN takes inspiration from the streamlined racing yachts of the America’s Cup, but its elegant form is characterized by a versatility that transcends time and place.

AHNDA BY DEDON

DEDON

AHNDA by Stephen Burks is an outdoor lounger with all of the iconic style, ergonomic comfort and luxurious attention to detail one expects of the finest indoor pieces. The designer immersed himself in the weaving culture of the Philippines to develop the chair’s signature open weave, a sort of ‘transparent upholstery’ of weatherproof DEDON fiber, beneath which AHNDA’s clearly articulated form signals a fresh approach classic lounger style.

Lounging to the next level

Lounging to the next level

A modular system of remarkable versatility, RAYN combines the comfort and sophistication of the world's finest indoor systems with all the outdoor knowhow and barefoot luxury one expects from DEDON.

Lounging to the next level

Inspired by the poetry of Surrealism, so rich with paradox and possibility, Philippe Starck has dreamed up RAYN. A modular system of remarkable versatility, RAYN combines the comfort and sophistication of the world’s finest indoor systems with all the outdoor knowhow and barefoot luxury one expects from DEDON.

Lounging to the next level

“The centerpiece of the garden,” says Starck, “RAYN was designed to bring pleasure not just to those lounging on it but to those around it.” This is as evident in the collection’s innovative new textile weave as in the asymmetrical beauty of its forms, accentuated by armrests so generously proportioned they double as side tables.

DEDON is located in suite 460.
