Swiss Cushion Brand ARIT Spring Summer Launch Quai 61
Winter in Switzerland can definitely be very C O L D!!! It seemed incongruous to be walking through the Zurich snow to the launch event for ARIT, the Swiss Cushion brand’s Summer collection at Quai 61 the other night, but once inside the cosy interior, it was easy to be transported to the Summer months in Zurich – where outdoor living, on your balcony, your terrace or in your garden, is one of the highlights of living in this city.
One of the key things you need for the outdoor-city life in Zurich is high quality outdoor furniture and accessories and this is where ARIT comes into its own.
ARIT a Swiss Quailty Brand
ARIT is a very Swiss brand which has been manufacturing high-quality interior products at its own factory in the Eschenbach near Lucerne for over 40 years. Every piece from inception to the end product is made by hand with style, skill and dedication using high quality and innovative products.
Innovative and Robust Materials
They use outdoor materials that are comfortable but which are practical for outdoor use. For example, interior fillings like the Breathable 3D loop structure fabric made of elastic polyester, which is used in hospitals to give support to patients, but which also allows air and of course rain water to pass through. There are beautiful colours and patterns to choose from and the cushions are not only UV resistant but extremely fast drying too.
Many items are also multi functional. The lounge mat can be easily transported from garden to park to lakeside beach, but can also be divided into three individual seat cushions and there are handles and carry straps to enable transportation. They also have side tables and chair cushions which transform into stools for additional seating.
Cushions with Lights
My favourite though were the cushions with built in lights. Designed to be used outdoors (but there’s no stopping you using them inside too, especially for Christmas) they use LED embroidery technology which lets the cushions shine by using light-emitting diodes. Adding a bit of glitz and glamour, they are easy to maintain as they use a rechargeable battery pack like the ones you use to charge your phone.

ARIT a New Brand Name
Up till now they have been manufacturing for other brands such as Pfister, Interio and others, but they have now decided to launch their own collection in their own name, ARIT. This year’s Spring Summer collection consists of three colour schemes: Sunny Bell, Blue Hour and Merry Moon, all designed to remind you of a beautiful Summer’s day.
So if you’re looking for quality cushions and loungers to beautify and enhance your outdoor spaces, you will be pleased to know that as of the end of February 2017 the company will be selling it’s own collection online.
