Sutherland Furniture Enhances the Plateau Collection
Posted on 01/26/21

 The Bonetti | Kozerski designed collection receives sophisticated update 

 Dallas, Texas – October 26, 2020 — Sutherland Furniture, the preeminent provider of luxury outdoor furniture, has expanded the Plateau Collection, which originally debuted in 2017. Designed by the highly acclaimed duo Enrico Bonetti and Dominic Kozerski of Bonetti | Kozerski Architecture DPC, Plateau reflects the pair’s unique aesthetic of understated luxury. For Fall 2020, Sutherland added four beautifully minimalistic pieces: an armless sofa, dining side chair, right arm facing daybed, and rectangular dining table. 

True to form in regards to scale and presence, the new Plateau pieces highlight Sutherland’s attention to detail by selecting solid teak of Grade A quality. Ensuring color consistency and strength Plateau is a result of fluid design and exquisite craftsmanship. The Plateau Armless Sofa is simple yet inviting with a modern twist. Enrico Bonetti states, “We wanted to make the functional role of every piece evident, to create something of such scale and volume that it becomes as much an architectural installation as it is a piece of furniture.” 

The 2017 Plateau Collection featured a left arm facing daybed, so the Sutherland team balanced it with a newly released Right Arm Facing Daybed/Sofa. As with the original design, the daybed is a remarkable feat of construction, seamlessly fusing expansive pieces of solid teak to form an effortless design. “The wood joinery used in the collection is a distinction in and of itself,” adds Dominic Kozerski. “Rather than the traditional wood joints used in most pieces of furniture, the Plateau collection is built to achieve high strength while still looking seamlessly fused together.” 

Embellishing the Plateau dining options are a dining side chair and rectangular dining table. The Plateau Dining Side Chair reflects the honesty in the Bonetti | Kozerski design with bold teak architectural lines. A departure from Plateau’s pure teak designs, the Plateau 120” Rectangular Dining Table is accented with a stunning slab of Carrara Marble. The combination of the marble’s blue-grey veins and the teak’s natural grain results in a striking modern design ideal for grand contemporary outdoor spaces. 

“The pieces are elegant, sculptural and impressive forces of scale, and they embody the fundamentals of holistic design in an extraordinarily inventive way,” says David Sutherland, Founder of Sutherland Furniture. 

The Plateau Collection is available to interior designers and architects through David Sutherland Showrooms and representatives throughout the US and abroad. To view the full collection, visit High-res images are available upon request. 

About Bonetti / Kozerski 

Italian Architect Enrico Bonetti and British Architect Dominic Kozerski founded their Studio in New York in 2000. 

By applying their European backgrounds to sophisticated projects for strong personalities (Ian Schrager, André Balazs, Donna Karan and Diego Della Valle are some of their clients) the duo achieved what has been described “…an aesthetic of understated luxury. Their style is more of a sense: that of calm and warmth, evident only in the delicate interplay of space and light.” 

Alternating private residential projects with retail branding has helped to establish a very unique approach that brings together elements of both worlds creating unique and unexpected solutions.
