Pininfarina and Higold introduced an outdoor furniture Collection named Onda designed to blend in different environments and at the same time, to make them unique. Conceived for the outdoors, the Pininfarina design team took inspiration from the dynamism, elegance and purity of the ocean waves, the empty space that is created when a wave is broken, resulting into a hollow or tube wave (Onda in Italian).
The heart of the Collection is the structure, an aluminum band sustaining the cushions and becoming the iconic element of the whole Collection. The choice of the materials come from the Pininfarina 360° design experience: the aluminum – coming from the car sector – for the structure , the fabrics – used in the yachts for its resistance – for the cushions.
The Collection comprises a modular sofa, a two seater sofa, an armchair and a coffee table. Onda is the second project born from the collaboration between Higold and Pininfarina, after the Higold headquarters in Shunde presented in March 2017.
