As an industrial, interior and eco-designer, Claude Robin has a passion for everyday objects and unusual material combinations. Robin’s inspirations flow from the natural world, from organically occurring curves to the pure lines of the horizon. From there, he turns his focus to the ergonomics, touch and feel, materials and colours of each piece, as well as the longevity, recyclability and transport optimization to create the final product.
Withstanding the passage of time
The brand is always on the lookout for new materials, renowned for their elegance, as well as their durability, resistance to weather swings and ease of maintenance. Duratek, for example, is a grey-coloured teak that’s stripped and treated so that it does not need to be oiled. Batyline canvas and Sunbrella fabric, meanwhile, are not only easy to clean with soapy water, but also dry super-quick and retain their appearance over time.
