Design Kollection offers outdoor pavilion

Contemporary design appealing

Available this spring through select showrooms and garden boutiques, Design Kollection presents Temple, an outdoor pavilion comprised of an aluminum frame covered with hand-woven 1-inch PVC strips and a removable teak floor.

With open views to the world outside, Temple defines a room space and provides a modern context for entertaining and living without rigid barriers. Jason Champion, co-owner and creative director of Design Kollection, designed Temple for Tidelli, a 14-year-old Brazilian outdoor furniture manufacturer.   “I took an existing piece they had, the multifunctional Little Cube, and imagined it as a room,” Champion said. “Next, I incorporated Design Kollection’s outdoor fabrics for draperies and cushions. “What I love about the room is that it translates the versatility of the Little Cube, which is a foot rest, chair or side table, depending on how you choose to use it,” he said. “With Temple, you have a space that can be a kitchen, dining room, living room or office, which is my favorite application. Everyone should work in an outdoor office, and someday we all will.” Shipped in four boxes weighing a total of 670 pounds, Temple requires a two-man crew for a one-hour assembly. Once assembled, the piece is 10 feet square. Design Kollection, co-owned by Champion and Morten Pedersen, was founded in September 2005 to inspire the contemporary movement in exterior design.
