Expormim presents Käbu (curve in Japanese). With this name, Javier Pastor, teacher at UPV and industrial designer, emphasizes the conceptual design process of the new outdoor collection of the Valencian company.
“The light structure is dressed with a technical fabric that becomes skin and wrap. The curvature generated as a result of the fabric tension on the structure highlights the desire for a lightweight, upholstered frame. An upholstery that avoids excessive prominence”.
The lightness is pursued through two versions, Batyline Senso® and 3D Mesh finish (this last one is a highly resistant and durable technical fabric formulated exclusively for Expormim. The main contribution of the 3D Mesh is its great ventilation capacity. Two colors can be chosen to dress the structure: Brown-Taupe and Black-Black).
To develop the collection, Javier Pastor has aimed for two challenges: to convey a sensual and essential memory, the enjoyment of outdoor life characterized by the sun, the breeze, and the water, and a perfect adaptability to different contemporary architectural environments. For the designer, and without any doubt, memory is a great registry not to be renounced.
