Product designer Carsten Astheimer has created what he hopes is the the ultimate contemporary outdoor seating collection for furniture manufacturer Gloster. 

The vision behind Bella lounge chair and garden bench was simple but it challenged every aspect of Gloster’s technical and manufacturing capabilities in the re-creation of the vision.  Fundamental to the design of Bella is its highly sculptured seat and back made from a series of shaped, laminated teak slats. Unique within outdoor furniture, this feature provides a three-dimensional form, making Bella not only elegant, but also very comfortable.
