Caluco debuts Flip Out Collection

Designed by the notable product and brand development firm, Grant Design Collaborative, Caluco's Flip Out Collection breaks new ground in outdoor furniture design.
The collection's functional and fashionable seating components feature seat backs that flip down to create a table surface, bench or ottoman. This innovative feature also serves to keep the collection's foam straight-line cushions dry in rainy weather.
"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."
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 in San Fernando, Calif., 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.
