La Dolce Vita… These famous Italian words came to mind while we were enjoying the wonderful spazio in Via Cernaia, Gloster’s home for Milan Design Week 2018. Our guests enjoyed the blooming cherry blossom trees and the peace and quiet of this oasis of calm in the middle of the lively Brera quarter, next to famous San Marco church. The garden provided the perfect setting for the world premiere of the new DUNE collection by Sebastian Herkner and our idea for the future of outdoor fabrics. A powerful new colour range which was the perfect match with the ambient hues of the villa garden, but please see for yourself in the short video above.

Like the shifting sands of the desert, the Dune collection combines soft lines and repeating patterns in an outdoor seating concept and a collection of four new knitted fabrics designed by Sebastian Herkner. A bohemian influence defines the style, with softness and spontaneity added via specially developed fabrics made with 3D knitting technology. Supreme comfort is achieved using upholstered cushions, blankets and soft pillows placed within and on top of an aluminium frame with a teak base.
