Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola has connected two prolonged cushions to the back of this outdoor chair with coloured straps.
The Roll chair’s back assistance is formed from padded horizontal strips that search as if they’ve been wrapped up and connected like roll mats tied to a backpack.
“This ironical intervention on the standard upholstery converts a typical backrest into two independent ‘wraps’ connected by colourful straps,” explained a statement from Kettal.
Two pins at the leading of the vertical supports on both side of the back hold the straps in spot. These can be pulled out so the cushions can be removed and packed away.

A powder-coated aluminium frame supports the upholstered factors, which are available in a range of vibrant colours.
“A graphical aluminium construction frames the protagonist of this chair, the cushions,” mentioned the brand.
The seat cushion is covered in a semi-transparent material that is suitable for outside use. The straps also come in a range of hues to contrast with the upholstery.
Urquiola designed the stand for Kettal at this year’s Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan final month. She has prior developed a seat woven from nautical rope for the Spanish brand.
Other items the designer launched in Milan this yr included a assortment of iridescent glass furniture for Glas Italia. In the course of the occasion, she was one of a series of designers that spoke out about the intrusions of guests and journalists at the fair.
