Kettal Releases the Patricia Urquiola Designed Vimini Collection

By Caroline Williamson

After a conversation Patricia Urquiola had regarding Danish designer Nanna Ditzel and her Basket chair from the 1950s, she designed the Vimini outdoor collection for Kettal with the hope that their similarities might conjure up feelings of home. Overall, the collection is modern with moments of tradition that make it feel like an “object of memory”.

The basket-like structures of the seating inspired the Vimini name, which is Italian for ‘wicker’, as well as rhyming with Bimini, an island that Urquiola enjoys.

The pieces feature wooden frames with woven wicker basket-like seats that hold cushions for additional comfort. The collection includes sofas, dining chairs, and side tables.
