We wanted to make outdoor furniture that could stay outside every day, all year round, say Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the designers, and brothers, behind the Palissade outdoor furniture. Using public park chairs in their hometown Paris as their inspiration, the duo created this strong and durable metal chair that can withstand any weather condition. It has been carefully engineered to hold the body in perfect balance. The chair's streamlined, graphic appeal will seamlessly blend into its habitat, whether it's a lush country garden or a city balcony.

Ronan & Erwan Bourollec
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are brothers and designers based in Paris who have been working together since the mid-90s. Their work consists of a wide range of designs, including furniture, home accents and tech. The earliest design by Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec in MoMA’s collection, the Square Vase, was created in 1999. Since then, several designs by the brothers have been added to the collection, and the MoMA Design Store regularly seeks out the latest examples of their designs, such as the Belleville Chair, a piece that manifests their core attributes of minimalism paired with elegance.
