Paolo Rizzatto for Serralunga:Ashtray patio furniture sett Eufronio large planters NewPot garden planter, Giulietta garden bench, New pot Family garden planters New pot High Family garden planters Romeo garden bench
GiuliettaA garden bench positioned in a garden is not just a place for sitting and experiencing outdoor living, but it becomes an interesting centre of interest, a reference point and a place that appeals to the eye, thanks to the charm of luxury furniture. Its multiple and varied use must be able to adapt to every type of garden and space and this is why its shape is neutral and simple.
The classic English wooden "bench" is the formal and conceptual reference used. We have tried to provide a solution to a series of formal, functional, productive and commercial problems, but above all, the project was based on an attempt to evoke the "idea" of the garden bench.
RomeoThe garden bench is certainly the most widespread piece of contemporary furniture. The garden bench can be placed on its own to be admired on a terrace or in the shade of a tree, but it can also be used to form groups or lines. The tapered legs have a large cross-section, are solid and sit well on every type of ground. The sloping garden bench prevents water from stagnating. The backrest has slats that let you see through it and allow the passage of air. The curved section makes it particularly comfortable.
The innovative element is in the technology used (rotational moulding) that allows it to be made from a single piece of material.
Serralunga Romeo is the brother of Serralunga Giulietta, designed by Paolo Rizzato
NewpotA garden planter with a traditional truncated conical shape - almost an archetype of its own shape - that responds in a simple way to an old demand, interpreted in a new, sophisticated way.
This is the idea behind New-pot, designed by Paolo Rizzato, to combine functional perfection with aesthetic sophistication.
The New-Pot garden planters are available in several sizes. The High and Maxi versions are also available with internal lighting.
Eufronio is a large plantar that represents the best of Italian interior design, included in the section of Italian interior design, Serralunga pots.
Grooved surface that recalls the classicism of columns for a pot with a contemporary shape and function. The definitive shape is contradicted by the versatile use, dictated by the situation.
Paolo Rizzatto is the father of Serralunga Eufronio.
