As the namesake for this outdoor seating collection from Royal Botania, Zidiz means “check this out” in Aantwarps, a Flemish dialect from the city of Antwerp, Belgium. Designed by company co-founder Kris Van Puyvelde, Zidiz combines a sustainably harvested teak base from Royal Botania’s XQI line with a white Corian tabletop. The collection’s chairs are stackable. royalbotania.com
