Vimini - a new collection by outdoor furniture brand Kettal – was designed by Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola who took inspiration from Nanna Ditzel’s 1950s Basket chair 

The Vimini collection features an armchair (for designing), sofas and side tables. The collection was designed and curated by Spanish designer, Patricia Urquiola and officially launched during Milan Design Week 2018.

Brought to life following a conversation about Nanna Ditzel and her infamous Basket chair, the collection takes inspiration from the Basket.

The collection was aptly named Vimini, which means wicker in Italian. Outdoor wicker has been used, with a rougher wooden frame.

The chair consists of a basket with large backrest cushions. Seen from the side and back it has that modernist look. The braiding is traditional, your classic outdoor fibre.

'I fancied something really traditional, something a bit modernist, relaxed in the way we treated the fibre. And the Vimini, the chair with its classic braiding and baskets, it’s captivating, and we wanted to make something neutral'.
