Morrison, designed by Lionel Morrison, features a high table with stools and a large, low sybaritic bench. Form and materials reflect the refined sensibility of the Dallas-based architect renown for his serene modernist buildings. The design is simple. Floating frames create a form language and panel inserts in a choice of steel, glass, concrete or wood provide texture and tone. Seamless connections and flawless finishes define finesse. The magic is in the scale, proportions and experience. Standing at a tall table or perching on a high stool sets the stage for conversation. Sitting on a broad, beautiful bench with a friend provides the perfect condition for intimate conversation.
Olithas is a table and bench that create a magnetic field for active outdoor living. Olithas combines “lithos,” the Greek word for stone, and “olita,” the Spanish word for tiny wave. It gracefully integrates the fluted form of the classical column, the concrete and steel of international style architecture, and innovative MeldStone™technology to celebrate the natural and the man made, the very old and the very new. Tops and seats so thin they appear to float are joined to a tubular steel base with jewel-like stainless steel connectors. Olithas intrigues and lures, stimulates social life in outdoor spaces and sits lightly in the landscape.
