Dedon, the first to weave synthetic fiber into luxury outdoor designs, the first to place an absolute premium on quality, the first to become a truly global brand setting the standard for woven outdoor furniture since its founding in 1990 by former professional Bayern Munich footballer, Bobby Dekeyser.
This unique, weather resistant and aesthetically refined fibre called Hularo is produced at the company’s North German headquarters in Luneberg. It was registered as an international trademark and was the beginning of an unparelleled success story of Dedon. Their vision was to create outdoor living rooms furnished with the same attention to looks and luxurious comfort as those inside the home. Changing the way people live outdoors and allowing them to enjoy more of life’s precious moments together under the open skies.
Creators of the NESTREST, an innovative new hanging pod woven from supersize strands of DEDON Fiiber, Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety are two of Paris’s most intriguing design talents. Close collaborators of Jean-Marie Massaud, with whom they have forged new ways of working and approaching design, Daniel and Fred bring a rich diversity of experience to each project they undertake, alone or in a team.Born and raised in Bucharest and a graduate of UP4 (Paris-Charenton), Daniel collaborated with Philippe Starck on large-scale architectural commissions before joining up with Jean-Marie. He has since worked on projects ranging from Renault’s architectural identity to the groundbreaking Chivas stadium in Mexico, all while touring the world for three years with his young family. A graduate of Paris’s prestigious ENSCI industrial design school, Fred worked with Marc Berthier, then with Werner Aisslinger, before joining up with Jean-Marie and Daniel in 2004. He has collaborated with them on projects ranging from bathroom fixtures to yachts to a sustainable village in the Philippines.
