Tyvek

Outdoor furniture is at the forefront of my mind at the moment, as part of the island I’m designing. Throughout the Milan Furniture Fair, I have noticed tyvek being used as an upholstery fabric.

For those of you who are not familiar with tyvek, it is a material used in construction often to line a building during works. An interesting choice for Paola Navone outdoor furniture range showcased at Parisian Merci’s pop-up store Aspasi, in Milan’s centro, who embraced this material as well, and has manipulated it with digital print, pre-washing and stitching it.
