Depending on your perspective, the word ‘atmosphere’ can conjure up a variety of emotions. The freedom to move, to enjoy independence or intimate moments - to be at one, whether alone or with those closest to you. But atmosphere also buzzes with chatter and laughter and dancing light - the sound of good times amongst family and friends.

For the new Gloster Atmosphere collection, Danish designer Cecilie Manz has drawn from observing couples, groups, friends and families interacting in seating areas - sliding down low in comfortable furniture, tucking up legs, resting side by side as stories are told and moments are shared.
“This is why it felt natural” Cecilie says, “to lower the whole setting, to enhance and welcome this feeling of comfort and quiet - when you wish to have slightly more relaxed moments, even a few centimetres in height makes a significant difference. Sitting lower pulls you into a familiar, soothing embrace - welcoming you to unwind and stay longer.”

Cecilie has intuitively embraced the emotions behind the design in a powerful mixture of minimal, powder coated aluminium frames, generous boards of Gloster’s signature teak and cleverly designed self-supporting upholstered panels.
The minimal aluminium frames are finished with a resilient powder coating in Fossil colour and the self-supporting upholstered panels are covered with a selection of weather resistant outdoor fabrics by Sunbrella. Accompanying seat pads are also available in a variety of matching, muted colours.

The collection itself is comprised of a series of dining and seating components that share slim lines and welcoming, curved upholstered arms and backs. Equally attractive as stand- alone items or in a collection, the signature daybed/chaise lounge units are accompanied by an imposing sofa and occasional tables that easily double as ottomans or impromptu benches with the use of an upholstered pad.

Finally, in a nod to more traditional dining, yet still retaining the simple and inviting styling of the concept, a dining table is accompanied by a matching dining chair and bench.
Cecilie says “The materials in a project should reflect the usage of the pieces. Aluminium and teak are great materials for outdoor spaces, the finish of the metal is robust, and the solid teak gets a beautiful grey patina over time. Combined with the fabric options, the palette is subtle and harmonious, revolving around muted, sophisticated tones.
When asked if she can summarise her collection Cecilie smiles before answering; “It’s quite simple really... the name is a reflection of the situation. It’s all about creating atmosphere.”
