The MAUI Collection
The Maui Collection encompasses a range of all-weather outdoor seating and occasional tables, with each handcrafted piece exuding an elevated organic aesthetic that interacts and blends seamlessly with the natural environment. Seating features a signature radial rope pattern, which illuminates and frames the pieces like a halo. The undulating design creates a sophisticated rhythm and calming effect, with the travertine tables offering a balanced and elemental touch. The space divider completes the look, doubling as a planter box to fully integrate the surrounding nature into the outdoor collection.
Inspired by tropical landscapes, the Maui Collection is celebration of nature and the beauty of organic shapes.
Featuring a signature radial rope pattern that creates a sophisticated rhythm, our Maui collection is nomadic luxury.The collections Sofa, Lounge Chair, Day Bed, Sun Lounge and Dining Chair enjoy generous seat cushions with a multi-dimensional rounded back hand woven from all-weather taupe rope, all on a sliver of an aluminum plinth base. A casual mix of round and rectangular back pillows completes the aesthetic. Refined and yet Bohemian, these conversation pieces amplify any space.
The collections tables are crafted from hand selected slabs of natural travertine. Featuring long oval tops that echoe the collection’s curves, supported by shaped legs with softened edges that intersect to create a bold geometry. The true highlight of these tables is the natural beauty of the stone, with all of its coloration, pitting and texture. Built on an aluminum sub-structure and sealed for additional protection, these pieces are made to endure the elements. Generous in size, these versatile pieces ground any space.
Creative Director Marcel Wanders studio
“Sometimes when I think of design and interiors, and I trash the ignorant, the unthoughtful, the lazy and the tired use of white walls and under-inspired minimalism, I hallucinate and dream of a world, a design, a philosophy that truly builds on love, that builds on creativity, that builds on fantasy, and when I fail to explain my pain and try to express the urgency of my vision, I will proclaim vigorously that every square centimeter deserves our love, that every square centimeter deserves our thought, that every square centimeter deserve our attention, that the divine is in understanding relationships, that large and little are sisters that cannot live without each other’s love, and then..... I think of sailing the seas of creation with vigorous passion”
