Roda Teka Collection

From Italian furniture maker Roda comes the Teka outdoor collection designed by Gordon Guillaumier. A sophisticated and versatile range of sectional sofas, armchairs, and dining and side tables, it proposes an outdoor living experience through the combination of natural and high-tech materials with a spotlight on teakwood. Each piece has been designed around a prism-shaped geometric construction that maximizes the teakwood’s durability. Outdoor fabrics with ornamental button detailing add both form and function as they allow the cushions to be fastened to the chair to prevent slipping. It is details like these that illustrate Roda’s commitment to innovative design that works. Furnitalia, Crescent Park West, 30th Street corner Rizal Drive, Bonifacio Global City, 819.1887
