Designer Hella Jongerius delights in often unexpected combinations and contrasts of material choices. As such, it's no surprise that the Dutch master craftswoman complimented this aluminum-and-polyester seat with yarn wound around the armrests.
The Spanish-born, Milan-raised Urquiola is widely responsible for making contemporary outdoor furniture just as appealing as its high-design interior counterparts. This aluminum-framed minicottage with balau-wood slats is no exception: Urquiola descibes it as "the definative refuge in which to enjoy the outdoors."
Designed by Patricia Urquiola, and released by Kettal, the Maia line of outdoor furniture—which features intricate, handwoven, Alhambra-tiled plaiting—feels even more relaxed with this newly added footstool.
Though this is perhaps the pouf least come-hither-appealing for feet, Kettal's ZigZag goes well both indoors and out. There are custom covers to soften the surface for your feet, or make it a perfect spot to rest a book and a icy beverage when you're cooling your heels.
