People don’t know what they want until you show them,” is something the famous London designer Terence Conran has said on more than one occasion. As a furniture creator and producer, he has brought his creative talent to numerous designs. He has now lent his eye and sense of line to Fermob to design a new range. In some ways it’s hardly a surprising encounter, since by his own admission, his garden is one of his favourite places, where he comes to relax, dream and find inspiration. And it was when he was looking at his outdoor chairs, made of wrought iron with classic motifs, that he came up with the idea for this exclusive range: a collection that takes a fresh look at tradition through the prism of emblematic 21st Century ergonomics. A square shape with rounded corners, softened with a curved base; its harmonious curves and elegant simplicity make this table more than convincing. Beautiful metalwork that once again demonstrates Fermob’s expertise. The chairs are perfectly in tune with the table. Their codes and proportions are borrowed from English garden chairs but they stand out thanks to their surprising geometric backrests. A colourful spider’s web for children, a woven net, an artful figure... whatever your imagination comes up with! And when you know that both table and chairs come in all the shades on the colour chart, you start to dream of stylish or romantic combinations, whether they blend into the colours of your garden or make a bold statement.
