In the chill of winter here in Gauteng, it’s not easy to visualise the balmy days of summer and the alfresco lifestyle South Africans so relish. Yet all things must pass, including lockdown and the current crisis that has changed the world.
A warmer and less restricted lifestyle is only a few months away and Spanish designer / manufacturer Kettal has launched its latest and as always timeless and practical models.
Designed to integrate seamlessly into the architectural environment with an aim to create private spaces by means of transparent material and light structures, Lounge Pavilion consists of a slim-line aluminium structure with a variety of specifications and different ceiling and side panel options. Lighting is provided with a spotlight. It’s available in two seating configurations: single bench and corner bench, with a range of 30 aluminium colour options, 34 terrain fabrics and 4 curtain fabrics to choose from. Customers can tailor their space to their own specifications. Kettal’s utmost regard for functionality and first-grade materials ensures the creation of a high-quality and durable product.
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, Kettal is now adding three functional adaptations to the parasol’s base: a sofa / daybed, table and planter. Each offers a useful additive to this otherwise obstructive element. Meteo marked the beginning of a collaboration between Kettal and Konstantin Grcic with an intention to explore the largely untapped design potential of modern parasols.
Protection from direct sunlight is becoming a quintessential condition for our health and well-being. 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 specialised product category.
Available in all Kettal aluminium colours
Half Dome Lamp
Never the same Half Dome, never the same light or mood. Half Dome (designed by Naoto Fukasawa) offers endless variations of lighting, sky situations and seasonal characteristics. The options reflect the varied creative responses to this remarkable granite monolith. This outdoor light, suspended over the structure, appears as moonlight.
Available in two versions and 34 aluminium colours.
