Cane Time Presents Sutra – A Collection With Variable Geometry

EGO Paris approached the famous Parisian designers, the Studio 5.5, to design SUTRA – an outdoor furniture collection with variable geometry.

They are known for drawing their inspiration in the poetry of the everyday life and skilled to transcend the conventions. They have designed an intelligent and completely versatile outdoor lounge that, from an alphabet of 5 seating elements and a coffee table, allows everyone to imagine an infinite combination of layouts.

Sutra revisits the Kama collection with a graphic design and takes modularity a step further. By alternating wood and aluminum, Sutra plays with light and shadows.

A wink to the beaches “ganivelles”

For the entire collection, the design studio 5.5 has been inspired by the “Ganivelles”, these famous beach wood fences that protect the dunes along the beaches. The teak slats, sometimes vertical, mounted on an aluminium structure, sometimes horizontal for the coffee table, allow light to penetrate into the interstices in a very graphic light and shadow game.


A real planning tool for the outdoor space design

The SUTRA collection is built around a coffee table and 5 seat elements: corner module, ottoman corner module, central module, ottoman central module, and ottoman module. They connect and multiply by simple interlocking and, combined with a subtle set of cushions, allow infinite configurations.

Alternatively, users can choose to arrange their modules in outdoors sofas, sun-loungers, multiple armchairs, meridian, relaxation island or in ottoman. There are as many combinations as ways to sit, activities (exchanges, reading, nap etc.) or wishes.

The material used for the structure of the modules signs the footprint of EGO Paris: the thermo-lacquered aluminium, available in shiny (semi-gloss) or matt finishes (fine-textured) in forties colours, and with a choice of 38 fabrics patterns.

Find Sutra by Ego now available locally at Cane Time in South Africa.
