Kettal Bitta is characterised by a combination of aluminium frames , seats of braided polyester and comfortable cushions, teak and stone for the table tops—all completely weatherproof materials.
My aim was to create dense braiding that would still let the air through, reminiscent of the braiding of the ropes used to moor boats (hence the name Bitta, which means ‘mooring’ in Italian), which makes the pieces look lightweight but, at the same time, they look just like cosy nests in natural colours to sit back and relax in.
Since its beginnings in 1966, Kettal has had an international calling to design and innovation. In the first years of the 21st century, Kettal acquired the brands, Hugonet y Triconfort, which came together to form Group Kettal.
Today, Kettal works with the most important names in international design: Patricia Urquiola, Rodolfo Dordoni, Hella Jongerlius, Jasper Morrison and Emiliana Design studio.
