Owo introduces a new concept in the design of outdoor furniture with this ultra modern outdoor chair - the Disk Armchair by Karim Rashid. Perfectly suitable for being placed in the backyard or poolside, the chair will provide a comfortable rest as well as outstanding looks. The shape is innovative by itself, giving the impression that the chair is floating above the ground. No need for magic here though, because the material used for this special design is fiber glass. This also allows a number of color variations as the Disk chair comes in white, yellow or black. The middle of the disk is slightly lower than the rest, as if influenced by gravitation, to provide the comfy seating space. Time spent will be pure pleasure thanks to a conveniently placed cushion in polyurethane foam and polyester fibre. The chairs are available for purchase through Owo.

For a modern and classy rest in your garden, the contemporary stone benches from Stone Forest are ideal. Offering a high-end design, it may be surprising to learn that these benches are cut from large slabs of travertine. But this is the secret of their unique, minimalistic appearance. Also, by using natural stone (namely travertine), the benches offer a green approach to garden decorating and promote the fact that natural means beautiful. It's also important that no commonly used man-made cement or cast stone were employed in the production process. The integrity of the travertine makes the final carving stand out discretely but powerful at the same time. The dimensions are 60" L x 20" W x 18" H with a 3.25'' thickness. The contemporary designed stone benches from Stone Forest are available in silver and beige travertine.
