Ace, Ethimo’s new collection for outdoor sports

 

The passion for sports goes to Ethimo’s house with the new collection Ace, designed by Patrick Norguet and named after the winning serve in tennis.

Conceived as a collection of original furniture for outdoor sports, Ace offers a new interpretation of both the design and the often underappreciated comfort which usually characterise athletic stations and seats, during international events.

The result is a “system” that has a clean and elegant design in order to to attractively furnish tennis courts, pools, athletic clubs, and exclusive resorts, adapting perfectly to the context in which it is placed.

The fulcrum of the collection is an extremely versatile bench which can be configured according to various requirements and equipped with additional accessories, like the surface made from Black cork (a natural and 100% ecological material), the shoe rack, the bag holder, and the container with aluminium bottle rack. For the tennis world, the iconic seat for the chair umpire is added to the bench.

The bench’s inviting shape is the product of sophisticated and highly skilled craftsmanship which gives the teak its special curve; the modular benches allow for various customised configurations.

In particular, the modular bases on which to insert accessories and seats are available in four different lengths: 150 cm, 210 cm, 240 cm, and 300 cm, while the primary materials, which give shape to the various structures, are natural teak (FSC certified) and aluminium, the latter available in four colour variations: Black Red, Moss Green, Coffee Brown and Warm White.

The use of environmentally friendly materials that stand up to outdoor use make Ace an athletic collection which is designed to adapt to and respect the environment in which it is placed, proposing a new way of experiencing outdoor sports.
