The INJOY collection of bistro chairs and tables is a tribute to the terraces of the world, from Ibiza to Paris via Rome and New York. Designed by Eugeni Quitllet, a longtime collaborator of Philippe Starck, the collection distills the terrace experience, that joyful swirl of color and conversation, to its essence. Indeed, Quitllet conceived and developed INJOY while sitting on the terrace of a favorite Barcelona café.

The chairs of the collection come in a range of soft, inviting colors that were inspired by Parisian macarons. “They are like perfumes,” Quitllet explains, “peach, lemon, pistachio, blue mint, coconut, black pepper.” Having inhaled them, one turns to the design itself, at once familiar yet delightfully unique. The defining characteristic of the chairs is the injection-moulded aluminum ‘H’ structure of their back legs. Echoing its dynamic form, the aluminum tubes that make up the rest of the chair have been specially machined to change profile, morphing from round to elliptical as backrest becomes armrest and tapering gently as front legs approach the ground. Conveniently stackable, the chairs come in two versions, one with an open backrest and aluminum slats for the seat, the other with a fine herringbone weave over both backrest and seat.

The sophistication of the weaving is especially apparent on the armrests, which resemble the braided handle of a whip. To facilitate the weave, DEDON developed an innovative new fiber for INJOY, microscopic bubbles giving it a luxuriously soft, leather-like texture. Fabricated entirely of aluminum and available in a choice of Coconut or Black Pepper, the INJOY tables, like the chairs, come in a state-of-the-art, pearly-finished powder-coating that is five times more resistant to scuffing than standard treatments. Lightweight yet strong, timeless yet fresh, colorful yet remarkably weather-resistant, here at last is a collection of table and chairs ready to take its rightful place on the terraces of the world.
