AT HOME OUTSIDE.
Do you know a place where dreams and reality blend into one? Where you don’t exactly know – when your eyes are only slightly opened – whether you’re on the beach or still in the city? That’s exactly where the new outdoor collection Rolf Benz YOKO is at home: somewhere else. At home.
You can now enjoy the unique feeling of being outside with the legendary seating comfort of ROLF BENZ. A warm Mediterranean breeze suddenly sweeps over the
terrace and you can hear the waves through the rustling of leaves in the garden as the sun beats down. It’s no coincidence that we named our first outdoor collection after the Japanese word for sun.
“The Rolf Benz YOKO modular outdoor sofas can be reconfigured as often as you like and promise complete relaxation. Mixing different genres, they combine the clean lines of German design with a Zen spirit and a light French/Italian touch."

NATURE HAS MANY FACES.
The Rolf Benz YOKO outdoor collection is based around an outdoor sofa range that was designed to be highly functional. Rolf Benz YOKO blends in with its natural surroundings and can easily be arranged into corner sofas, recamières, sunbathing areas or face-to-face situations – optionally with flexible, integrated storage shelves in bamboo, teak or ceramic.
With the Rolf Benz YOKO armchair, you can put your feet up and forget about the world. This outdoor armchair has found its place, either as a standalone item, in a group of armchairs or with the sofa from the collection by its side. A stool and optional comfortable side cushions help you take a deep breath and relax in the open air. With its light aluminium frame and hand-crafted woven detail, the armchair blends in with any setting even as a high-back armchair or rocking chair.
TOP PRIORITY: ULTIMATE FLEXIBILITY.
The Rolf Benz YOKO sun lounger combines the art of relaxation with maximum flexibility. An integrated gas pressure spring ensures stepless height adjustment. Complement your outdoor living room in your own personal style with the Rolf Benz 261 and 262 coffee and side tables and the Rolf Benz 240 pouf.
EYE TO EYE WITH NATURE.
It’s not only easier to breathe freely in the open air, dining outside is also more pleasant. The elegant Rolf Benz YOKO table provides space for company and is a sight for sore eyes outside, whichever combination of materials you choose. For the insertion leaf you can choose between teak and two different ceramic surfaces which contrast beautifully with the aluminium frame. The chairs in the collection with their unique, hand-crafted weave detail complete the arrangement for an evening with friends, or a home office with a gentle breeze. The Rolf Benz YOKO chair can optionally be upholstered with loose seat and backrest cushions since its rope weave detail alone provides ergonomic seating comfort.
New: Rolf Benz JUA. The comfortable shell chair for outside.
Flexible as ever but weatherproof – with foamed backrest and seat cushions that are specifically made for the outdoors and an optional swivel function, Rolf Benz JUA provides the usual comfort offered by its popular indoor twin for the garden table as well. The shape of the cushions is perfectly adapted to the inside of the chair’s shell. A non-slip coating ensures that they always maintain the ideal seating position. You can customise the design as you like: the organic seat shell embellished with plastic radii is available in Anthracite or Umbra grey. The cushions can be combined with all fabrics in the Rolf Benz Outdoor cover collection, with 3D effects contrasting attractively with the monochrome seat shell.
NEW: ROLF BENZ SUNO. THE DURABLE ALL-ROUNDER FOR OUTSIDE.
The Rolf Benz SUNO table that combines perfectly with the Rolf Benz JUA outdoor chair comes in three sizes. The anthracite frame braced over the cross bears a removable, finely-structured table top made of a weatherproof mineral stone mix. It is therefore a consistently high-quality and long-lasting antithesis to short-lived, brittle outside furniture.
New: Rolf Benz JACKOUT. A design icon set free outside.
An air of freedom blows over legendary design. With Rolf Benz JACKOUT, Luca Nichetto’s iconic Rolf Benz JACK armchair is now available as an outdoor version. In contrast to the indoor version, the struts of the powder-coated stainless steel frame of Rolf Benz JACKOUT are delicately crossed to connect and stabilise them. The removable cushion nestles into the breathable and water-repellent seat shell made from a fabric membrane. The 3D cover fabrics in the Rolf Benz OUTDOOR collection make an exciting contrast with the technical shell which is carefully interwoven by hand with the frame. A pleasure for the eyes and soul that you have to try out. To ensure the feel-good factor outside, Nichettostudio has designed a matching stool that is ideal as a second seat or somewhere to put your feet up and relax. Drift off and float away in a unique seating experience.
NATURE IN ITS BEST COLOURS.
There are over 40 fabrics in the outdoor cover collection and they can easily handle all of nature’s whims. With their four colour schemes of Calm White, Mellow Grey, Reviving Blue and Relaxing Green, they blend in harmoniously and elegantly with the landscape.
