THE BEAUTY OF ARTFIBRE
Although we have a strong heritage for natural rattan furniture, and we truly do love making furniture in this material, ArtFibre, steel and aluminum also have some amazing qualities, especially for outdoor use.
Our exterior collections feature a range of furniture suitable for extensive wear and tear and challenging weather conditions. Many hotels, restaurants and cruise liners around the world welcome their guests with furniture from Sika Design. This requires a material that is sturdy and stays beautiful for a long time.
Our ArtFibre is a fibre made of dyed and hardwearing polyethylene. The structure of the fibres and the weave provide flexibility and optimum comfort. The ArtFibre can withstand the sun’s burning UV-rays, heavy rain and even frost. You can literally leave your furniture made with ArtFibre outdoors all year round.
All exterior furniture from Sika-Design is woven on aluminium or on a hot-dipped galvanized and powder coated steel frame.
In 2015 we introduce our newest collection Exterior based on a new exciting material that offers new possibilities and expressions for our existing models. The new material alu-rattan consists of a strong aluminium frame woven with ArtFibre. The material is maintenance free and can withstand all weather conditions. This means that original rattan models previously only suitable for indoor use now can be used in the garden and on the terrace and the balcony. The first of our original models in this collection are the Fox chair and the Albini Ottoman.
The Georgia Garden Collection is inspired by the colonial style from the old British colonies. We have created the design based on drawings found in old books and postcards. Georgia Garden is cosy and romantic and the entire collection fit perfectly with a garden as backdrop. The collection made from ArtFibre is available in vintage white, classic antique and our new colour chestnut. The new chestnut color has been developed with my grandmother’s old willow chair in mind. All three colors blend well with the trees and the flowers in the garden as well as with our teak items.
Avantgarde is a collection of furniture designed for the exterior living. The collection is hand-woven of the maintenance-free and UV-resistant ArtFibre, which is mounted on a stable hot-dipped galvanized steel frame. This makes for a piece of furniture that can endure all kinds of weather. The design is simple and minimalistic with focus on seat comfort and functionality. The result is solid elegance with an exclusive touch. Although the collection is primarily for outdoor use, it is also sold for indoor use, as the Scandinavian minimalist design fits many homes perfectly.
