Patinaed copper roofs and the white-green leaves of the willow tree were the inspiration when Massproductions expanded its outdoor furniture range in a new light green shade. Now the popular Tio Collection and the Roadie bench are now presented in a new colour named “Oilcloth Green”.

“For us, it is important that an outdoor piece of furniture can be in nature without creating too much visual clutter. It is a challenge that requires a certain fingertip feeling. A colour that in the indoor environment can appear pale, becomes very strong in full daylight amongst nature’s slightly duller colour scale”

The term “oilcloth” comes from the English term for the fabric that was originally used for the fisherman’s sou’wester waterproof hat and durable tarpaulins. A coarse canvas fabric is treated with boiled linseed oil to give water-repellent properties, a characteristic that also suits outdoor furniture that must withstand the elements’ impact all year round. As before, the new paint also consists of a UV-resistant powder coating developed for house facades, with extreme resistance to both sun and moisture
