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 outdoor collection Rolf Benz YOKO is focussed around an outdoor sofa range that was designed to be highly functional. For the first time, it brings luxurious seating comfort outside that was previously only ever experienced inside. In the open air, ultimate flexibility has top priority: this outdoor sofa blends in with its natural surroundings and can easily be arranged into corner sofas, recamières, sunbathing areas or face-to-face situations. In addition to the integrated storage shelves in teak or ceramic, the Rolf Benz YOKO coffee and side tables can also be used to create space in the outdoor seating landscape. As a tribute to geometry, the tables have either a round or a square ceramic table top.
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. Its light aluminium frame makes it easy to move around and with its hand-crafted weaving detail, it stylishly blends in with any surroundings. A stool and optional comfortable side cushions help ensure that you can take a deep breath and relax in the open air.
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 in three different dimensions 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 three 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.
NATURE IN ITS BEST COLOURS
There are over 40 new 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 nobly with the landscape at any time of the year.
