"It was an honor to work with Caluco to design the Flip Out Collection," said Bill Grant, Grant Design Collaborative's president and creative director. "Like all of the products we develop, form and function go hand-in-hand. Flip Out combines high design thinking with wit and whimsy to produce an innovative collection that is extremely user friendly."
Caluco Flip Out Collection
Fully welded and powder-coated premium aluminum frames support eco-friendly all weather polymer wicker that is tightly woven in an elegant herringbone pattern.
Ideal for commercial, hospitality or residential settings, Flip Out's clean, modern lines in chalk white wicker and tailored Sunbrella cushions will add style, comfort and functionality to any indoor or outdoor environment.
The Flip Out Collection was introduced recently at the Montage Hotel at an event attended by more than 100 guests from the design and architectural community. "The design is fun and interactive, and our clients would enjoy this," was one comment. Another said, "I find the Flip Out Collection fresh and creative." In all, 12 collections were on display for viewing.
