Ethimo presents Hut, the summer nest on a human scale

 

A unique nest on a human scale, a place to pause and regenerate out of doors.

This is Hut, the outdoor furniture designed by the young architect Marco Lavit for Ethimo with the aim of proposing a new dimension of comfort that conveys unprecedented sensations of warmth and protection.

Hut is much more than outdoor furniture, its proportions elevating it to bona fide architecture in Siberian larch, a wood that resists perfectly to outdoor use and preserves its natural beauty over time.

The structure of this wonderful nest, with its strong visual impact, is made up of a series of long “stalks” arranged in a wigwam shape with inserts and details in metal, that enclose generous circular seating, exceptionally comfortable thanks to its soft cushions.

Hut can be moved and adapted without needing to be fixed to the ground: 320cm tall and 300cm in diameter, it can be customised with an elegant curtain that “closes” this nest, allowing the air to filter through while protecting from direct sunlight.

Marco Lavit explains:

“Inviting and comfortable, its wooden structure looks skywards, protecting like a shell and becoming a privileged point of view, exclusive and private. The soft cushions on the seating welcome the body in a soothing embrace. A habitat where the alternating rhythm of the slats creates gaps that filter perception of this space, in a natural dialogue between inside and out.”

Are you ready to rest in the open air?
