Forget flimsy garden furniture: a new breed of outdoor seating has arrived. The O-ZON garden carver chair is created by designer Kris Van Puyvelde for Belgian brand Royal Botania. Made from powder-coated aluminium, or brushed or EP stainless steel, it’s a more durable and directional alternative to the plastic variety. Pair a set with the generous O-ZON oval table, whose two-metre-long teak top adds a natural element to the industrial, utilitarian vibe of the chair.
