DEDON has been on the market for decades revolutionizing the materials used in outdoor furniture combining German precision and cutting-edge technology with the highest level of craftsmanship. They have become famous for developing the most durable material used and shaped the outdoor furniture market with the DEDON fibre formula.

Their products have been used in many projects around the Middle East and have been sought after by the most exclusive clientele. DEDON products can be found in several projects across the region, such as Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, Burj Al Arab or Mandarin Oriental Jumeirah, but also several high profiles and Royal residences. Their innovative material makes the product extremely resistant and almost indestructible in the local climate when the only reason for a change of the furniture would be if you want to change the design or colour. In 2021 DEDON came up with another fibre innovation and introduced DEDON EcoCycle Fiber – which proves the company´s viability of an innovative sourcing procedure for renewable material. DEDON launched The Spirit of Place in 2022, merging reality and virtuality and unlocking a whole new dimension of outdoor luxury.
In 1960, a group of passionate entrepreneurs and furniture makers took the first step on a long journey. By the late 1980s, increased demand and access to plantation-grown teak drove GLOSTER to move production to Indonesia. The brand’s sole focus become to design and build the world’s finest teak outdoor furniture. GLOSTER is leading the way in ethically grown and harvested teak furniture, Gloster’s pedigree spans over 50 years and across three continents. Based in Europe with worldwide offices and manufacturing in Indonesia, Gloster is one of the world’s largest international producers of responsibly produced outdoor teak furniture.
Gloster’s collections have now evolved to a point of comfort and innovative design, working with the most celebrated product designers of our times.
The GLOSTER outdoor teak furniture is characterized by perfection in shape with no surface defects such as knots or scarring. They only choose the logs with an age of approximately 50 years to ensure that the wood is of the best quality to provide the best density and oil content. This makes their products resistant even during the hot and humid summers of Dubai.

Sustainability is a concept that should be approached holistically; from the origins of the materials, the production process up to the life and after-life of the products. From brands like Dedon and Gloster we can learn a lot and we find their approaches inspiring.
