RAYN

Inspired by the poetry of Surrealism, so rich with paradox and possibility, Philippe Starck has dreamed up RAYN. A modular system of remarkable versatility, RAYN combines the comfort and sophistication of the world’s finest indoor systems with all the outdoor knowhow and barefoot luxury one expects from DEDON.

“The centerpiece of the garden,” says Starck, “RAYN was designed to bring pleasure not just to those lounging on it but to those around it.” This is as evident in the collection’s innovative new textile weave as in the asymmetrical beauty of its forms, accentuated by armrests so generously proportioned they double as side tables. Criss-crossing horizontal ribbons of pale ecru fabric with vertical tubes of warm gray fabric, DEDON’s master weavers have covered RAYN’s powder-coated frame in an elegant new woven pattern that, looser and more open than usual for DEDON, brings out all of the rich, tonal variations in the fabric itself.

The result is an unprecedented combination of textures and materials — smooth powder-coating, a luxurious fabric weave and, for the cushion covers, a variety of the richest outdoor fabric ever created.
