The Urbanative Outdoor collection 2022
The latest Urbanative Outdoor Collection of 2022 is inspired by pieces within their past collections, as well as summer memories spent in family gardens or stoeps sitting on steel & wire mesh chairs watching the sun set.
The use of the woven mesh is reminiscent of the very first outdoor furniture that most homes had in the 80s & early 90s; this is a love letter to those sweet summer memories in Mme’s (Gran’s) garden, catching up on the days events and listening to the sounds of the day winding down.
As with all Urbanative pieces, the team endeavours to share & re-tell stories through furniture design & hope that this collection adds to your vast memories of never-ending summer days.
The story of home
This outdoor collection has been a couple of years in the making with researching of materials and ways of manufacturing. It waited for the right story to come through and we are so excited that it is the continuation of the story of home which has been the main theme of Urbanative’s creations this year.
The offering comprises of soft seating inspired by the new Pumzika couch and Akaya chair which has been reworked into a dining chair as well. In addition, they have partnered up with local makers and communities resulting in the Iziphaza Mat, made from recycled rubber as well as the pots which make up the Oromo planters by Urbanative. “We firmly believe in the running thread of community, collaboration and continuous relationship building and loved working with products by both Norris & Norris and The Seed store.
High standards for outdoor living
With the exploration of making outdoor furniture that will withstand outdoor conditions, Urbanative have selected fabrics from the international fabric house Sunbrella as well as local fabrics from The Mill fabrics & Hertex; which have a huge range of qualities such as breathability, mould, mildew, water & stain resistance. These fabrics are also UV fade resistant.
The framework of the pieces from this collection is thus galvanised to assist in the protection of corrosion of steel, e-coated where necessary and then powder-coated in UV stable exterior ferrograin finish. The colourways are subsequently inspired by lazy summer days. As such they are aptly named; coral, sand, palm, and ocean, ensuring that you will find the right fit for your patio or pool space.
