Unopiù was founded in 1978 in Soriano nel Cimino in the heart of the Tuscia countryside, fifteen kilometres from Viterbo, in an area which for centuries has been dedicated to the cure and culture of gardens. In little more then thirty years this small handcrafted reality has been transformed into the European leader of outdoor furnishings.
Structure: stainless steel and teak.
The new collection designed by Meneghello & Paolelli for Unopiù epitomizes these concepts through “Tweed” where fabric and weaving become the ideal link between hot and cold, between bygone and contemporary styles as well as, naturally, between tradition and modernity. With Tweed the accent is on the tactile and visual sensation and evolution of two materials of excellence: teak and steel. A delicate balance between the warmth of wood and cold steel, between the centuries old history of one and the contemporary and industrial note of the other.
Tweed originally meant textile framework, a framework whose outcome is a multi levelled woven fabric. The basic structure is precisely a framework of brushed steel, on which Teak is woven at two separate levels. In Unopiù Tweed the metal fundamentally represents the “warp”, while the wood represents the “weft”. The end result is a collection with character which is well balanced, formally serious and elegant with a strong sense of design. An up-to-the–minute contemporary collection, able to interpret the convivial and playful spirit of outdoor life in great style, using the best and finest materials available for outdoor use – steel and top quality teak – in an avant-garde way. In the new Tweed collection, the teak and the steel of the structure alternate evenly, creating a refined mix of line and materials.
