We’re a bit googly eyed over Fatboy’s Toní collection that’s ripe and ready for summer enjoyment! This boldly designed series of outdoor furniture is bound to become a new classic with its two bistro chairs, two tables, and fun accessories. Designed in collaboration with Erik Stehmann, Fatboy has reimagined the bistro chair by replacing its traditional woven cane with aluminum for the Toní Chair and Toní Armchair, making the design sturdy yet lightweight enough to carry wherever you need. Add an extra level of comfort with a high-quality, water-resistant seat pad that can easily be attached with a loop and toggle fastening. Storage is just as easy, stack up to four chairs for a quick cleanup.
Toní’s Bistreau Table will give you something to gather around, with a sweet two-in-one feature that’s parasol holder by day and candleholder by night! This table works great for a balcony or terrace, with adjustable legs to help make sure it’s level. Toní Tablo is a large rectangular table well-suited for dinners outdoors. Seating eight easily, it features a parasol holder that can convert into a three-armed candelabra come evening.
Feel free to use Toní indoors or outdoors with ease, thanks to every piece being stainless, UV, and weather resistant. Choose from anthracite, desert, industrial red, lemon, and mist green to carry your aesthetic right along with it.
The Toní collection is available at fatboy.com.
One study found the “average athlete’s water bottle contains 313,499 CFU (colony-forming units) of bacteria per square centimeter”. Dirty hands, backwash, and infrequent washes between uses are all attributable to the proliferation party of unwanted microbial guests on surfaces of reusable drinking containers. LARQ, a self-cleaning water bottle with a UV-C LED sanitizing light integrated into its cap, is designed to eradicate such bacterial and viral growth with an efficacy rate of 99.999% at the touch of a button.
The original TSA-friendly sized LARQ water bottle series was launched by Justin Wang in 2018, a crowdsourced technological solution answering public interest for a safer, reusable water storage on the go. LARQ’s innovation was delivering in the inclusion of its very own UV-C LED integrated cap, allowing users the ability to sterilize the bottle in the span of a minute using the germicidal properties of ultraviolet light with just a touch of a button.
The brand’s latest announcement is four additional colorways, each inspired by earthly hues drawn from landscapes and nature – the LARQ Bottle Movement Terra Collection. Aimed at outdoor lifestyles, its sleek design is suited for the mountains, beaches, deserts, or anywhere additional hydration is required.
The aesthetic update features the same self-cleaning UV-C LED cap design as the original, alongside the electropolished 18/8 stainless steel and interchangeable premium food-grade silicone sleeves – with new colors designed to evoke the great outdoors.
The LARQ Bottle Movement Terra Collection is available in two sizes: $78 for the 24 oz (710 ml) size or $98 for the larger 32 oz (950 ml) edition.

Sophisticated and design savvy, the Anatra collection, designed by Patricia Urquiola for JANUS et Cie, is constructed using textured braiding that wraps the frame of each modular piece and lounge chair. Create your own comfortable seating area, using seven versatile pieces that allow for several configurations.
“Anatra was born from my desire to play and experiment with the scale of weaving, a technique that is very distinctive of JANUS et Cie,” says Urquiola. “I wanted to try and find the perfect balance between lightness and durability, to translate the concept of comfort into generous and embracing seating solutions.”
The Anatra Teak High Back Lounge Chair interprets the collection’s handwoven rope and rich hues with a honeyed teak frame that has a beautiful Scandinavian form. A smaller version of the classic lounge chair silhouette offers up a smaller option for urban spaces, such as balconies.
Sink into Anatra’s deep cushions and rope finishes in either Cadet with Platinum or Cyan cross weave, or Oxford with Nickel or Cyan cross weave. No matter what you choose, the collection’s strong construction and luxe design bring comfort and style to the indoors or out.

The BASIC table, by Jenni Roininen for Nikari, is an elegant, modifiable jack of all trades. Whether you opt for the oval or rectangular shape, in solid ash or oak wood, it looks beautiful in a home, restaurant, or office setting. Both tables are lightweight, delivered in a flat pack, and very easy to assemble yet made to last the test of time. Combine rectangular tables in between two oval ends to create a long banquet table that’s also easy to pull apart again when finished.
Known for combining modern design with the tradition of Finnish craftsmanship, wood design studio and furniture manufacturer Nikari takes into account the quality of everything – from design to sustainable production techniques.
