PRODUCT REVIEWS & NEW TO MARKET
A town in Marin County that sits upon the San Francisco Bay inspires an exciting new contemporary outdoor furniture design based on mid-century California Modern style. The city’s name comes from the Spanish word tiburón, which means "shark." California designer Ilan Dei partnered with Terra Furniture (www.terrafurniture.com) to create a collection that marries the modern elements of a city with its natural surroundings to produce a rich, timeless look.
Ilan Dei born in Israel, of North African descent, is inspired by the lushness of the Mediterranean cultures, as well as, by the natural beauty of Southern California’s terrain, climate and diverse cultures. Ilan coined the term "lush minimalism" to describe his design approach, one that is minimal in terms of line and form, yet lush in materials as represented in this new Tiburon collection. Dei’s design melds nature into the sleek modern furniture with the application of a cutout “pebble” pattern trim a unique floating oval which appears on the backs of the chairs, chaise lounge and the edge of the dining table.
New to market this 2009 season the Tiburon Collection is structured in a lightweight cast aluminum and is available in a multitude of custom and standard finishes. So whether you are sunning by the pool or relaxing in the luxury of your own home this is a design that celebrates nature and modern sensibility. Tiburon Collection
