Manille is a unique piece of outdoor furniture that offers both practicality and fun. Designed as a table-seat formation, this picnic table comfortably accommodates up to four people on the benches while the head of the table is reserved for wheelchair users – making Manille an inclusive and accessible table for everyone.

What makes this picnic table stand out is its versatility. Extend the table in length by connecting multiple tables side by side. Join the tables together to create a table that’s as long or as short as you need it to be. Whether it’s a cozy setting for four or a sprawling table for sixteen, Manille fits on a single pallet – talk about flexibility! An endless table without the hassle of transporting a single, large table?

Manille provides a practical solution for any event! Another unique feature of the Manille picnic table is its striking shade design. Roll out the canvas and slide the four poles into the attached backrests to provide a cozy and relaxing experience.

This intuitive shade system is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also creates an intimate cocoon to enjoy the outdoors in. With a joyous design available in different colors, Manille adds a touch of life and personality to any (outdoor) space. But don’t let its playful design fool you. Manille is built to last, with the highest-quality materials that ensure durability and long-lasting performance.
