Maison Objet 2010 - Kettal

A new collection of outdoor furniture by Spanish Kettal was the highlight of the Outdoor furniture selection in Hall 7. New collections presented were designed by Rodolfo Dordoni and Hella Jongerius, who will publish a book with Phaidon later this year.

Hella Jongerius's sturdy "Bob" chair and stool had an architectural feel and was an upmarket interpretation of the cheap plastic garden club chair. Lovely woven detail on the arms.

Bob chair is named after the "B" letter that the sides express

A matching footstool
Italian Rodolfo Dordoni came up with a more extensive collection of furniture called "Bitta" named after the knots used when mooring boats. The woven details are inspired by these knots and the whole collection sported a "natural" feel both in palette and table textures of teak and marble.

Just a snippet of the Bitta collection
