BIVAQ outdoor furniture: the perfect addition to summer entertainment

When it comes to alfresco living, nobody does it better than Southern European countries. On the shores of the Mediterranean, where the climate is mild and the days are longer, people truly know how to enjoy the open-air life. It’s no wonder that local furniture companies have felt challenged to experiment with forms, materials and colours to provide the outdoors with an essential dose of style and cool comfort.

Founded in 2003 by a young entrepreneur and a small team of committed professionals, the company has succeeded in positioning itself on the international design scene, where it currently plays a leading role in most of the more than 25 countries to where they export their products.

Simple lines and a clean, timeless design are differentiating attributes of BIVAQ’s outdoor ranges. “Garden, terraces, actually nature in general, can be considered as a refuge from stress and hectic modern lifestyles; it should offer a long-term perspective, a break from the impulse of the moment. Furniture plays a crucial role here, providing outdoors with adequate comfort, practicality and beauty,” explains Andrés Bluth, the Uruguayan, Barcelona-based industrial designer who has created some of the most iconic collections of the firm, including those featured in the newly-launched 2018 catalogue: Illa, Vint, Sit, Nak, Nak 65, Mood XL, Nude, Club, Dats.
