Nothing so much as defines outdoor living as alfresco meals and this rectangular dining table from Petite Friture lets the good times roll. To seat up to 8 people, it retains the slatted motif from the Week-End collection in the tabletop with its lovely rounded edges. The entire range of outdoor furnishings includes a companion armchair and side chair as conceived by Parisian design duo Studio BrichetZiegler. Fashioned in durable aluminum, the table comes in a range of attractive shades, all with a matte finish in a grained and anti-UV powder-coat.

Paris-based Petite Friture (French for “small fry”) champions new names as well as veteran designers as they collaborate on objects, lighting and furniture, all created for everyday life. “Emerging talents benefit from the exposure of the more established talents, while established talents remain fresh and open to new ideas thanks to the contact with emerging talents,” says founder Amelie du Passage. “I like to think of Petite Friture as the meeting point.”
Every product tells its own story. “It alludes to happiness, the sunshine, and a simple but pleasing dish to share with people you love,” Amelie says. “In short, it means many positive things that make life worthy.” She sees the workings of the much-heralded brand, which only debuted in 2009, much like a book editor. “Our role is to gather all of these mini-narratives together and combine them to create the Petite Friture story.”
