Simple lines and a great functionality: the first yachting collection designed by Espen Øino for Paola Lenti premièred on the occasion of the 2023 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show.
Capri folding chair and deck chair, Sabrina small armchair and Elianto platform, are born from a shared design philosophy inspired by the principles of a timeless design. In today’s complex world, the collection seeks synthesis. It embraces the idea that true elegance is found in essentiality.
“We have meticulously crafted each piece– says Espen Øino – paying great attention to every detail. Each line, material choice, and finish has been designed to harmonize form and function ensuring an exceptional outdoor experience”.
"Capri", one of the novelties.
The project is equally dedicated to reducing environmental impact through the use of recyclable and recycled materials. The padding, made of polyester fiber Aerelle® blue, is a testament to this common commitment, created from plastics recovered along riverbeds and at sea.

What truly sets this collection apart is its exceptional functionality tailored for life at sea. Espen Øino’s rigorous approach to functional design, honed through extensive experience in designing mega yachts that blend luxury with practicality, is complemented by Paola Lenti’s expertise in materials research.
The Capri chair and deck chair, being folding and easily storable, create free space in compact environments. Sabrina, with its generous proportions, fosters convivial moments around the table during extended dinners or meetings aboard. Lastly, Elianto, thanks to its circular design, allows occupants to follow the sun without shifting the seat.
