Outdoor furniture designers KETTAL are a constant source of innovation and creativity. There’s no doubt that as we enter a new decade they are going to continue to lead the way. What better way to start than with the release of two stunning collections?
The BAND collection
The first collection KETTAL announced in 2020 was the BAND collection, with Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola. Comprised of a dining chair and a club armchair, the collection represents a breakdown of structure. KETTAL describes the design as something that, ‘intentionally challenges the classic sophisticated lines of furniture design and becomes something schematic, a conceptual programme.’ They further explain that the collection explores, ‘A structure made up of repetitive angular shapes that give centre stage to its raw materials…’ KETTAL’s genius has always been in marrying clean, highly structural designs with intriguing materials and colours to create furniture that appears complex and beautiful.
The BAND collection is distinct in its design but available in enough variety of material and colour that any designer or curator could make them their own. The furniture can be constructed from aluminium or teak wood, and furnished in KETTAL’s Terrain Fabrics. Terrain Fabrics are available in over 30 colours, including a range of neutrals and KETTAL’s striking rainbow palette. They are hardy – no surprise for fabrics designed to withstand outdoor and hospitality usage – with their fire resistant classification to the level of NFPA 260 CAL117 and a DuPont Teflon coated® / Anti-Mold finish.
The Dots Collection
KETTAL Studio is also presenting a new collection in January 2020: Dots Collection lamps. Kettal describes, ‘Dots lamps, manufactured in aluminium with LED lights, are available in two versions: floor lamp with a circular base and planter lamp with a base that can be fastened to the ground.’ Versatile beyond the range of designs, the collection has been designed for both indoor and outdoor use. The lamps are adjustable – both height and direction can be adjusted to create the light design that the customer or end user desires. Always paying attention to the essential outdoor details, KETTAL have included a waterproof switch in the design. Each lamp is also available with a USA plug.
Each Dots Collection lamp is available in 30 aluminium colours, from classic dark and metallic shades to striking jewel tones and restful pastels.
