Like many other products created by Lagranja Design, its first outdoor furniture collection, named Bold, was born as to respond to a necessity while working on their interior design projects. The Bold chair was specifically designed for The Populist, the Istanbul bar and brewery. Their design for the venue requested some outdoor chair that could be eventually used inside without looking out of place. On the other hand, the divan and armchair were developed for FOC Sentosa, the restaurant and beach club sited in the popular touristic Singapore Island.
One of the goals when creating these pieces was to complement the first furniture collection edited by Lagranja, the Basic Collection, with an outdoor collection. Just like its predecessor, it follows simple lines, although the concept was creating pieces that look sturdy, unlike the minimalistic trend, and as a follow up to the nostalgic look of the Basic collection.
This robust look was made possible with the use of aluminum tube with a diameter of 32mm, a generous size compared to the standard used for this kind of furniture. Despite their look, the Bold pieces are extremely light, easy to carry and move, something that the design studio had in mind when creating them for a contract project. To bring more lightness without sacrificing comfort, the back and seating are made with mass tinted acrylic tape. This process assures duration to the colour, even though its outdoor use.
The Bold Collection includes a chair, a lounge chair (lower and wider) and a stool in two different heights (75 and 60 cm), as well as a table. The table stand is made in die-cast aluminum in three different heights (50, 75 and 110 cm) while the tabletop is available in aluminum and HPL, both adapted to outdoor use.
To these main pieces, the collection adds the Club Armchair and the Club Sofa that, instead of the tape seating, include an upholstered one (also made in mass tinted acrylic fabric). Both Club models also include separate cushions – one for the armchair, two in the case of the sofa.
