MBRACE Alu: Redefining Outdoor Comfort

Renowned for their expertise in weaving synthetic fibre into premium outdoor furniture, Dedon has introduced MBRACE Alu, a sleek new addition to their renowned MBRACE collection designed by Sebastian Herkner.

Initially pioneering for its fusion of DEDON Fibre seating and teak base, the addition of MBRACE Alu, now with an optional aluminum base, breathes new life into an already admired collection, showcasing a fresh new look along with Dedon's new range of colour options.

The MBRACE collection has garnered widespread acclaim since its 2016 debut, owing to its inviting, cocooning sensation delivered by the chair's extra-wide back and its unconventional take on outdoor furniture.
