The Bitta sofa offers both warmth and comfort

Kettal Bitta is a warm, comfortable collection which features a combination of aluminium frames with braided polyester cords. The new extendable table is available with a teak, marble or aluminium top. The overall look is quite something else. 

‘My aim was to create dense braiding that would still let the air through, reminiscent of the braiding of the ropes used to moor boats (hence the name Bitta, which means “mooring” in Italian), which makes the pieces look lightweight but, at the same time, they look just like cosy nests in natural colours to sit back and relax in’. says Rodolfo Dordoni, designer behind the Bitta collection for Kettal. 

Architect and designer, Rodolfo was born in Milan. He designs for various companies: Artemide, Cappellini, Cassina, Minotti, Flos, and Dordoni Architetti, founded with architects Alessandro Acerbi and Luca Zaniboni, deals with architectural planning and interior design, residential complexes, stores, restaurants, hotels, yachts, as well as exhibit stands of diverse commercial fields. 

Perfect for the outdoors, Bitta offers a comfort rarely available in these spaces. You might have spotted it at our very own Buddha Bar in Dubai, where it takes centre stage in the outdoor seating areas. Started by Manuel Alorda back in 1964 and today designs and fabricates some of the world’s most distinctive outdoor furniture. We love this brand so much, nearly every edition of ours features them!
