Kettal, the Spanish specialist outdoor design company, is exhibiting in the Salone Fairgrounds displaying its products in an expansive show for their professional clients.
The stand displays full collection settings designed by international talents like Patricia Urquiola, Rodolfo Dordoni, Jasper Morrison and Hella Jongerius and for the first time Kettal has re-edited a modern classic – the basket weave chair by Nanna Ditzel.
Basket Chair by Nanna & Jorgen Ditzel
Kettal edits the Basket chair, created in the 1950s by Danish designers Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel.
The Basket chair, made from oak, comes in its original version created by the Ditzel, hand-braided in wicker, and in an outdoor version, made from artificial fibre and teak.
The cushion fabrics, also designed by Nanna Ditzel, the ‘queen of Danish design’, are pure new wool and come in 4 colour combinations and 8 Hallingdal fabrics by Kvadrat.
The Basket chair won awards in 1950 at the Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition and in 1951 at the Milan Triennale.
Roll by Patricia Urquiola
This ironical intervention on the conventional upholstery converts a regular backrest into two independent ‘wraps’ connected by colorful straps.
A graphical aluminum structures frames the protagonist of this chair, the cushions.
The straps are connected to the main structure by the mean of two pins in that can easily be removed, allowing the user to store the cushions during the winter time.
The seat cushion is supported by a semi-transparent micro fabric.
Mesh by Patricia Urquiola
Kettal Mesh collection recalls architectural facades, which filter the surrounding environment without stopping the light and air flow.
Industrial and natural materials, hard and soft surfaces, transparent and solid volumes are putted face to face in order to create this family of outdoor furniture based in contrasts.
The expanded metal used for backrest of the sofas and tables gives a feeling of lightness, and at the same time become the support for wooden and marble tops and cushions.
The slight bending of the sofa arms give a delicacy to this industrial frame, inviting the user for a nap.
The solid wooden base of the sofa and the voluminous and comfortable upholstery resembles the memory of a comfortable living room translated into an outdoor atmosphere.
The new Kettal Maia Rope collection designed by Patricia Urquiola, an evolution of the classic Kettal Maia, adds a light design and natural elegance.
It is hand-braided with nautical rope and the legs are teak, a combination that transmits energy and warmth.
The proportions of the Club armchair have been changed.
This new version has an indoor language, while being totally outdoor.
Kettal Bitta by Rodolfo Dordoni
Kettal extends the colour palette with new cord colours, Kaki, Marengo and Grey, for Kettal Bitta by Rodolfo Dordoni.
Kettal Bitta is a warm, comfortable collection which features a combination of aluminium frames with hand-braided nautical cord, which makes the pieces look lightweight yet cosy, teak and aluminium legs, and stone and wooden table tops.
Village Club Arm Chair by Jasper Morrison
A versatile collection for any outdoor location, from a country house to an elegant café.
Thanks to its lightweight aluminium frame, it is easy to move about and its neutral form means that it overshadows nothing in the surrounding area.
The table tops are made from aluminium composite.
This collection is a tribute to the classic concept of metal stacking chairs for the outdoors that also features a renewed design.
Winter Garden by Kettal Studio
The new Winter Garden pavilion, which comes in a larger-than-usual standard size (5.3 x 5.3 x 2.80 m) with optional special sizes, is finished in tempered glass on both the sides—which feature sliding doors and casement windows—and the ceiling.
The Winter Garden pavilion has new closed aluminium ceiling, and a new fabric sliding ceiling.
The Winter Garden provides a completely closed space, although all its sides can be removed for conversion to a pergola.
The floor is made of composite wooden slats
When Manuel Alorda founded KETTAL in 1964, he also set a style and a way of thinking beyond fashions.
This work has evolved over time. Now in its second generation, the process has changed but the objective remains the same, in keeping with its tradition and its history: a calm, timeless design
combined with quality and the enjoyment of the senses.
