the 'Portal' Outdoor furniture and lighting collection is a testament to the fusion of style and durability. Each piece, including a side table, coffee table, stool, and chair, is meticulously created to withstand the elements while elevating the aesthetic of your outdoor space. The materials, ranging from durable powder-coated stainless steel to waterproof fabrics and stone-like surfaces, ensure longevity and resilience in any environment.

Bodo's signature design language is evident throughout, characterized by a harmonious blend of simplicity and sculptural elegance. The recurring S-shape silhouette and organic forms of each piece radiate timeless sophistication, making a captivating statement in any outdoor setting.

An innovative aspect of the collection lies in its versatility. The side table, for instance, can effortlessly transform into a stool with the addition of a seating pad.

lighting

These modular lights, whether hung, standing, or used as flat discs, offer flexibility to tailor the outdoor space according to your exact specifications, reflecting your unique style and personality. The versatile flat disk lighting in the 'Portal' collection serves not only as a source of ambient light but also doubles as a practical platform for showcasing your drinks and food during al fresco dining evenings. This innovative feature enhances the functionality of the lighting elements, providing a dual-purpose solution that seamlessly integrates illumination and practicality.
