Sophisticated and elegant yet accessible and extraordinarily comfortable, TRIBECA exudes a warm, modern and urban allure. Its presence is accentuated by the brown tones that lend color to the interwoven upholstery, giving dedon’s classic fiber the appearance of natural leather. The effect is further enhanced through a treatment applied to the metal parts of the structure, which serves to darken them just enough to bring to mind the walnut wood so typical of Danish modern furniture. In a nutshell, TRIBECA reflects a radically new approach to furniture design and construction. The range is set on sturdy and ultra-light hydro-formed metal legs that very much resemble the dynamic metal forms found in cars and racing bicycles. TRIBECA promises to be another instant classic from Richard Frinier, the renowned American outdoor furniture designer who has already created such timeless and acclaimed dedon collections as ORBIT, DAYDREAM, BARCELONA, PANAMA and SPA.
Widely referred to as the king of outdoor furniture, American-born Richard Frinier is credited with bringing luxury and sophistication out of the home and into the garden. He is known for his mastery of a range of styles, from modern and contemporary to traditional and classic forms.
Over the years, Richard has been the recipient of more than 70 product design and career achievement awards, and in 2009, he was the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to the industry and his community, as designated and awarded by the International Casual Furnishings Association. The first designer ever to collaborate with DEDON, Richard remains one of our most prolific. In 2006, The Robb Report magazine celebrated his DEDON DAYDREAM as one of the best designs at large over the past 30 years. In 2008, his soft-modern Spa collection won an international red dot design excellence award and the HD Expo/IIDA Design Excellence Award. And for 2011, Richard continues this tradition of excellence with an extraordinary new collection of dining and lounging solutions exclusively for DEDON.
