Abaco Chair, Black/White

by Paola Navone

Estimated Ship Date On or Before 05/08


The Abaco collection by Paola Navone for Belgium design brand Serax merges Mediterranean influences with the tradition of Indonesian craftmanship. Paola Navone explains “I often use black and white in my designs. Universal colours that can lead you in any direction, classic or rather very modern. In addition, they accentuate the textures of the materials in a natural way.”

For these four weatherproof chairs, the designer was inspired by the typical chairs of Italian bars from the 1960s-1970s, which would be moved indoors or outdoors depending on the season. The black or white powdercoated frame was traditionally stringed with PVC wiring in the same or contrasting color. The Abaco chairs are not only comfortable and durable, they are also lightweight and stackable. They come in handy inside and around your home, but are also great for bars, restaurants and their terraces.

Serax Philosophy is to look for beauty everyday, “to bring the good things that make life worth living, the things that create a home that inspires happiness”, to offer products that have soul. Every collection is crafted traditionally.
