IL GIARDINO DI LEGNO
The collections by Il Giardino di legno are made only with the best materials to be used in outdoor environment. Our R&D dept. constantly selects the most performing materials to guarantee the long lasting and aesthetical requirements.
Teak (Tectona Grandis) is the premium choice wood species for outdoor furniture. Thanks to its high natural oil content and close-grained structure, Teak is highly weather-resistant and can be left outside, both during hot summers and cold winters. New Teak furniture has a warm honey brown color, after some time it will get a silver grey patina. Check in the Maintenance section for treatments available to regain its original color, and to clean any kind of dirt or spots. We only use selected Teak from carefully controlled plantations. Il Giardino di Legno uses synthetic fibers made out of fully dyed HDPE. Unlike natural rattan and ordinary plastic cords, these fibers, based on polythelene, have unique attributes of UV and weather resistance, are 100% recyclable, strong and durables in all temperatures, maintenance free, pest and fungus free.
Stainless steel is a ferrous alloy, highly resistant to corrosive conditions, thanks to the addition of chrome and nickel. It has the right mechanical and chemical properties to be used for outdoor furniture: extremely strong and durable, easy to clean and a very contemporary look. Batyline® is a unique fabric that combines the elegance of natural fibers, with the performance of industrial textiles, to meet all the requirements of garden furniture.
Our R&D is constantly involved in selecting the best performing materials for new projects and new collections. Some of the new collections are now using thermoplastic resin as Polyethylene, which, with the technology of the rotational moldings, allows us to create long lasting and colorfully outdoor furniture. Aluminium is used for the structure of the rattan furniture as well as exposed in some metal collection.
Advanced technical fabrics are selected for some design where are required specific strength resistance. Fabrics and synthetic leather are selected from the best brand on the market to offer high performance in a large range of colour and finishing.
