KETTAL VDL Pavilion
Kettal introduces the VDL Pavilion, which measures 12×4 meters and conserves the building’s original interior layout, as well as a version with a completely transparent interior.
Under the supervision of Dion Neutra, Richard’s son, we have used updated construction methods and materials while respecting all of the house’s original details.
An automated smart home system has also been designed to control the lighting, air conditioning, and heating, among other things.
“The box is opened fully by sliding doors so that the actual rooms of the house are the garden spaces. This house, in its free relation to the ground, the trees, and the sea, is in constant proximity to the entirety of nature. It acts as a guide and a ‘shock absorber’, providing a well-needed relaxation space away from the complications of daily life.”
MOLO COLLECTION by Rodolfo Dordoni
This is an example of a modular sofa in its purest form. Its orthogonal geometry is based on a rectangular modularity design, which means it can be easily adapted to suit any situation and optimize the space in which it sits. Each module can be taken apart and re-organized, creating new uses and configurations.
The design is aesthetically minimalistic with intentionally oversized pieces. What’s more, the decorative elements have been consciously downplayed to give center stage to the various combinations of fabric, colors and carefully selected details.
Manufactured in aluminum, teak, Concrete and Terrain Fabrics, the collection is composed of sofas, a deck chair, and a center table.
BAND Designed by Patricia Urquiola
The idea behind the Band collection is the breakdown of structure. An object designed using an ensemble of pieces. The chair’s design intentionally challenges the classic sophisticated lines of furniture design and becomes something schematic, a conceptual programme.
A structure made up of repetitive angular shapes that give center stage to its raw materials and can be formed entirely of aluminum or teak wood and of Parallel Fabrics or Leather. The collection comprises a dining chair and a club armchair.
HALF DOME Designed by Naoto Fukasawa
Never the same Half Dome, never the same light or the same mood. …Half Dome is a great mountain with endless variations of lighting and sky situations and seasonal characteristics; the many images reflect the varied creative responses to this remarkable granite monolith.
The moonlight has a particular size of diameter as people imagine it. The dimension of Half Dome light follows our image of the moonlight size. This outdoor light, suspended over the structure, seems to be the moonlight.
Available in two versions, 34 aluminum colors.
BELA Designed by Doshi Levien
Bela ropes were designed by Doshi Levien in 2017 as a new outdoor material for Kettal’s material palette. Designed primarily as a textile material to be used on furniture, Doshi Levien saw an opportunity to illuminate the 17 different colors of Bela ropes by creating lamps for outdoors.
The aim was to make a lamp with a continuous length of rope in a form referencing the texture and lightness of traditional handwoven lanterns. Every year in India there is a kite festival and the streets are lined with enormous spinning frames wound with colorful kite string.
These light wooden structures gave Doshi Levien the idea for the frames or spools onto which the Bela ropes are clipped.
Bela lamps are colorful, versatile and they can be placed directly on the floor, suspended or used as a standing lamp.
METEO Designed by Konstantin Grcic
The foot of a parasol is often where it shouldn’t be: in the way. So, why not turn this obstacle into something useful? Having launched Meteo in 2018, we are now adding three functional adaptations to the parasol’ base: a sofa/daybed, a table, a planter. Each one offers a useful gesture to this otherwise obstructive element.
Meteo marked the beginning of a collaboration between Kettal and Konstantin Grcic.
It was aimed to explore the largely untapped design potential of modern parasols. Protection from direct sunlight is becoming a quintessential condition for our health and wellbeing.
The increasing impact of parasols and other sunshade systems on the planning and furnishing of modern cityscapes, recreational resorts, and private dwellings gives rise to the challenge of a renewed approach to this specialized product category.
All Kettal colors are available.
