Milan based Spanish architect Patricia Urquiola contrasts the visual intricacy of hand braided textures with smooth, bold strokes to create stunning, yet sturdy, options in contemporary seating. The new Maia Rope collection from innovative brand Kettal, elaborates the Kettal Maia collection to incorporate updated profiles and materials. Set apart by its graceful forms and gorgeous patterns in hand braided nautical rope, this collection of rope furniture inspires and delights with its unique style and design.
Woven around an aluminum frame, the delicate patterns offer a signature aesthetic in hand braided knotted yarn. Deliciously detailed and utterly simple in a single frame, the patterns help this collection find its place among the most organic and the most austere of decors and spaces. Its sound construction and low maintenance make these a great buy – whether for the outdoors or indoors. Porotex and Chennile fabric cushions balance out the inherent hardiness of the rope furniture, and are available in an array of earthy tones that complement the seating and space perfectly.
The units are available with teak or aluminum legs and in a range of profiles, finding a multitude of expressions for a core sensibility. From armchairs, footstools, bar stools, sofas to the egg swing, each of these renditions is light, airy and unmistakably impressive.
