Barcelona-based Kettal introduces a new series of outdoor carpets by Patricia Urquiola. Two years of research by the company has led to Nido d'Ape, the innovative textile used within the collection. Exploring the woven fabric of a coffee filter, the texture was emulated with braided PVC to create an aerated surface which is both breathable and resistant to damaging UV rays and external agents.
Ideal for outdoor environments, the rug's 3D surface can be easily cleaned of any accumulated dirt. An organic palette of brown, grey, beige or red are produced by weaving diversely hued fibres to create its variegated colouring.
