Network is Roda’s archetypal collection, the one which marked the firm’s real turning point in terms of design. A product line whose highly distinctive feature is the marked presence of solid teak, a modular system for living and relax situations: Network, that is. With brilliant providence, Rodolfo Dordoni turns the skeleton of the backrest into a perfect shelf to hold the accessories of rest & relaxation. The structure offers both shape and ornament: clean lines and elegant simplicity work horizontally, in a rhythmical game of full and empty spaces. The Network collection is composed by sofas, stools, coffee table, benches, chairs, loungers and a sunlounger with wheels and teak bar for towels, in the teak structure and grey or tobacco belts.
Teak wood contains a natural oily resin which makes it extremely resistant to weather, temperature, parasite attacks and insects. The exposure outdoor creates a 1/2 mm-thick oxidation patina on the wood surface which favors its discoloration to a silver-grey color; this change does not affect its original characteristics in any way. The grey patina can be avoided or removed with the correct maintenance.
