Designed for mass production, Breeze is compelling proof that good products last for decades. First released in 1995 and still up-to-date, it has received several awards and sold over a million pieces, supplied for the most demanding contractual uses, including naval.
At the end of its useful life, the materials contained in Breeze are separable, therefore easy to dispose of. All this thanks to the fact that the design uses only eight parts which, simply connected and screwed together, produce a modular result that is assembled in no time.
