Bitta by Kettal

Milan welcomes a new collection of outdoor furniture from Kettal. The assortment of Bitta products, designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, is made from a combination of aluminum frames, braided polyester seats and cushions, and teak and stone tabletops. The dense braiding, which is inspired by the ropes that tie up moar boats, stands up to the elements but still lets the air flow through, like a comfortable nest for relaxation.
