Outdoor furniture brand Kettal has released Stampa, an outdoor-friendly armchair conceived by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec following an exploration into different metal manufacturing techniques.
June 16th, 2016
The Stampa armchair is made entirely of a single material, aluminium, which has been subtly perforated to soften the industrial impression commonly associated with metal. Designed by Paris-based brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec in collaboration with outdoor furniture brand Kettal, the material and clean silhouette of Stampa ensures its longevity, even with regular outdoors use.
Kettal used a series of metal production techniques to materialise Stampa. An injection-moulded ring acts like a structural bone that enforces the stability of the armchair, while connecting the ‘stamped’ seat and back to its hydro-formed legs.
The enveloping seating shell is perforated using a technique drawn from punching metal sheets. These delicate perforations make the aluminium armchair less cold, without compromising on the overall structural integrity. It also creates a tactile experience that references textile patterns.
Stampa can be customised through an extensive range of colours, with the option of cushioning to enhance comfort.bouroullec.com
