From vision to reality: Award-winning design.

The solpuri designers‘ award-winning designs take life outside and open up new, sensual living spaces. This is manifested in the timeless beauty and detail of the designs – a modern interpretation of legendary Bauhaus design, committed to the highest level of seating comfort.

Uncompromisingly high-quality metalwork

For our stainless steel and aluminium collection, we use only the highest quality alloys, perfectly predestined for outdoor use, ensuring long life and maximum stability. The timelessly elegant frame structures featuring high wall thicknesses and complex moulded parts are elaborately processed. The use of CNC machines and welding robots during manufacture, combined with hand-finishing by experts and thorough quality control produces incomparable, unique pieces.

“SOLPURI STANDS FOR EXTREMELY HIGH-QUALITY MATERIALS, THE SUSTAINABLE USE OF RESOURCES AND ADVANCED MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY IN THE INTERESTS OF UNIQUE PROCESSING.”

Design

Joie de vivre meets design

Design is the play with shapes, colours and materials, the art of combining the old with the new and consequently setting new trends for life outside. It is the deliberately chosen opposites that give the solpuri collection its unique character – solid lightness, timeless modernity, cool cosiness and simple elegance.

Comfort, quality and sustainability: these are the materials we use to craft our innovative and long-lasting outdoor furniture with meticulous care and passion for detail.

Sustainbility

Certified teak for almost everlasting durability

The teak for our furniture is grown on selected plantations in Asia that are run according to ecological and social sustainability criteria. Our wooden components we use are fairly traded, and our suppliers are certified by the German TÜV. The wood is grown naturally and processed without chemicals. Consequently, it meets our extremely high standards of quality and durability.

Well thought out design for protection of resources

During conception and development of our furniture, we appreciate the careful treatment of our resources. Our used materials are low-pollutant and recyclable – all of them. The removal and replacement of single components is possible because of high-quality and discreet placed screw connections. Therefore you get long-lasting furniture.
