Bringing modularity outdoors, the Sway system is crafted from solid teak, ensuring durability and a natural finish. Characterized by a blend of curved and angular lines, Sway's multiple elements can be configured in a diverse array of possibilities, ensuring a dynamic and ever-changing outdoor experience.

The gentle curves of the supportive frame, combined with the silky smoothness of the teak wood, evoke a sense of soft sophistication. The "weaving" of the backrest creates a distinctive touch reminiscent of traditional Mediterranean natural materials. The woven motif is supported by burnished metallic rods, adding a contemporary aesthetic. The backrest weave is available in teak or olive-green EVA polyurethane, a pliable yet non-deformable material with salt- and weather-resistant characteristics, ideal for outdoor furniture.

Generously sized cushions create a rich and soft feel. Molded from polyurethane with variable densities, the seat cushions ensure maximum support that will not wane with time. Designed for outdoor environments, the upholstery is both weather-resistant and breathable. Despite their large dimensions, the cushion covers are easily removable for added convenience.

Offered in two sizes, the adjustable back cushions not only highlight the elegance of each element but also enhance the intricate woven pattern. Meticulously crafted, their design allows for easy customization, ensuring a harmonious fusion functionality and personalization.

The Sway modular system consists of eleven elements that can be artfully arranged to create a harmonious interplay of shapes and flowing lines. This ensemble features two chaise lounges, sofas in two dimensions (255 cm and 177 cm), a corner module for intricate configurations, a central element, four side terminals, and a serene island for ultimate relaxation.

The Sway pouf, with its compact dimensions, encapsulates the principles and technologies applied to the modular system. A series of coffee tables, available in three sizes, features the same aesthetic motifs as the Sway family, presenting a harmonious and customizable addition.
