Post Image

La Grande Muraglia, a celebrated furniture collection originally created by architect Mario Bellini and B&B Italia founder Piero Ambrogio Busnelli, has been reimagined for the outdoors after forty-three years. This transformation, titled La Grande Muraglia Outdoor, marks the first outdoor venture for marble and stone specialists NEUTRA. Unveiled during Milan Design Week 2024, this majestic seating collection blends sculptural elegance and architectural precision, utilizing natural stone to create a seamless integration of design and nature.

Developed under the creative direction of Migliore+Servetto, La Grande Muraglia Outdoor epitomizes luxurious outdoor living without compromising on quality or aesthetic. The collection features a stunning array of seating options, including a three-seater sofa, a two-seater sofa, an armchair, and a chaise lounge. Each piece is crafted from Silver travertine, chosen for its intense coloration and high porosity, which NEUTRA enhances with a veined open-pore brushed finish. This treatment not only ensures durability but also highlights the stone’s unique characteristics, making each piece a work of art.

In a nod to versatility and comfort, the outdoor collection’s upholstery is crafted from waterproof polyurethane covered with resin-coated fiber, complemented by a water-repellent polyester lining. Available in five striking colors—Zaffiro, Matcha, Corallo, Terracotta, and Tabacco—the removable cushions provide both visual appeal and practicality. These cushions are designed to be easily removed for winter storage, revealing the sculptural beauty of the stone bases, which are inspired by pillars and a lintel, reminiscent of ancient architectural elements.

La Grande Muraglia Outdoor is more than just furniture; it’s a testament to the enduring appeal of custom furniture design. Each piece reflects a harmonious blend of traditional craftsmanship and modern innovation, offering a unique solution for those seeking to enhance their outdoor spaces with elegance and functionality. The collection’s ability to withstand the test of time and elements without sacrificing aesthetic appeal makes it a standout in the realm of custom furniture design.
