The story of Dedon actually begins in a hospital bed in Munich in 1990 when Bobby Dekeyser, a promising young football star, was recovering there from a devastating hit in the face. When he was lying in the hospital bed, he decided to change his life completely, leaving professional sport to pursue his lifetime dream and to start his own business.
When visiting Cologne furniture fair in 1991, Bobby Dekeyser discovered whickered rattan furniture from the island of Cebu in the Philippines. He was so impressed by their traditional techniques, that he decided to fly to the Philippines at once to learn the art of wickerwork. When he returned home six months later, Dedon became an outdoor furniture company. In that period together with his uncle Seppi, an expert in plastic extrusion, Bobby developed a unique synthetic fiber resistant to sun, water, wind and frost. This resistant material was just perfect for the manufacturing of high-quality outdoor furniture.

Swingrest is one of the first products created by Dedon’s creative group in the Philippines in the collaboration with the designer Daniel Pouzet. Swingrest takes its inspiration from the extra-high ceilings of the resort’s villas. Borrowing the basket-like bottom from his earlier creation, Nestrest, Pouzet has managed to create an original piece that’s no less enchanting and even more spacious. Beautiful yet unpretentious, luxuriously comfortable yet remarkably practical, Swingrest is distinguished by the purity and simplicity of its concept. With Swingrest, the French-Romanian designer has created the perfect hideaway for swinging and relaxing on the terrace or veranda, in the garden, or under cover of your favorite tree.

This suspended shelter, rocking to and fro with the breeze, becomes that special and secluded place you’ve always dreamt of. You can hang it from the tree or choose a free-standing version that can be easily placed anywhere. Nestrest is a secret hiding place fit for a modern garden where you can rest after a long day of work, just leaving behind all the chaos and the stress of the contemporary life.

Undoubtedly, TIGMI is one of the most comfortable pieces ever created by Dedon. Hand-woven by DEDON’s master weavers in an open, semi-transparent style, TIGMI’s roof evokes the improvised, palm covering of a beach hut. As light and shadows play across the interior, you can be transported to a holiday state of mind, as if staying at the beach bar of a rustic resort. Enclosed on three sides, TIGMI establishes a shared viewpoint that reinforces this communal experience, perfectly fulfilling DEDON’s mission of bringing people together to enjoy life outdoors.
