Award-winning outdoor furniture: „Overlap“ by Skagerak

Skagerak’s “Overlap” series was named Outdoor Furniture of the Year by Elle Decoration Sweden magazine this year. “Overlap”, consisting of a bench and table set plus a new round-table, has its name from the construction of the legs and is made from weatherproof materials that ages gracefully.

Last year, Skagerak unveiled a new collaboration with the Swedish studio TAF Architects which has been working in a creative mix of architecture and design. The first result of this new Danish-Swedish relation was the Overlap bench and table set – created in a simple, solid and tenacious design perfect for the outdoor space, but just as beautiful in an indoor setting. Powder coated steel legs that overlap in the construction – hence the name – carries the solid wooden planks made from Western Red Cedar – a light but very sturdy type of wood that patinates with a silver-grey nuance over time.

Then, Skagerak presented a new addition to its Overlap series – the round table in the Overlap series is available in two sizes and designed with a tabletop in compact laminate. The three steel legs are similar to the bench and table set – folded and overlapping in the structure. The simplistic expression ensures that the roundtable fits into both indoor and outdoor settings and matches various types of stools and chairs.
