We personally don’t know any guys that aren’t turned on by a Ferrari. And we’re guessing that a good majority of the baller men inhabiting this planet will definitely be in awe of this limited edition Ferrari-inspired outdoor furniture collection by Belgian designer Peter Donders. Batoidea (the original moniker for the fish family comprising the sleek stingray and now the label for Donders’ latest release) is a brilliant fusion of design and technology. The design is revolutionary and is as fluid as it is minimal. If your outdoor lawn is screaming for some attention and color, make sure you take a look at the Batoidea Seat while you narrow down your options.
If it isn’t evident at first glance, the next logical question that arises is ‘in what way is it Ferrari-esque? For starters, the smooth exterior finish is just like in a Ferrari. Second, Batoidea is subjected to the same rigorous quality control and painted using the same method that is employed during manufacture of the luxury sports car. And finally, the 3d printed sand mold technique is also the same as that used to manufacture the insides of the Ferrari engine.
The material used in the seat’s construction is aluminum. The chair measures 73cm (H) x 100cm (W) x 57.6cm (D) and weighs approximately 8kg whereas the footstool is 38.5 (H) x 34.4 (W) x 51cm (D) and weighs approximately 4.5kg. Although the Batoidea seat is displayed in a bright red color, other colors are possible on demand. The collection is limited to 12 pieces + 3 artist proof aluminum furniture pieces. Be prepared to budget 12 weeks from order to shipping as these are limited edition pieces that are available only on order. Batoidea is also available in a chaise lounge design.
The outdoor furniture line is one of the most futuristic designs we have come across to date. It is a gorgeous three dimensional fusion of traditional craftsmanship and modern technology. Make sure you use matching or at best solid colored upholstery for the seating.
Price is available on request and does not include the footstool. The footstool is optional. For more information, images and to place an order, please visit Outdoorz Gallery.
