MAIA armchair by Patricia Urquiola for KETTAL

What makes an object useful, engaging and beautiful? What is it about a distinct design that conveys calm, wonder and excitement in the user and helps us recall a moment in time? These are questions that find an answer at the thre-month long Washington, DC International Design Festival, the exhibition curated by Artisphere and Apartment Zero on display February 21 through May 19, 2013.

The cornerstone of this free three-month long multidisciplinary celebration of design is The Next Wave: Industrial Design Innovation in the 21st Century, a 4,000 square foot exhibition exploring innovation in product design from the last 13 years. Concentrating on five areas of interest: eco-friendly design, functionality and minimalism, the conceptual and the avant-garde,  The Next Wave focuses on innovation from Spain, Italy, Belgium, the U.K., Scandinavia, the Netherlands and the United States among others.


KETTAL puts on display the MAIA armchair, a design of Patricia Urquiola that, as the whole MAIA range, is  “an industrial reinterpretation of handcrafted plaiting” .

The collection moves away from archetypal plaited furniture through the use of new contemporary geometry. The furniture gains in lightness and modernity by combining high-tech fibres and a broad aluminum structure.

MAIA ranges: egg swing, sofa and bench

Suitable for outdoor use, MAIA seating feature also a cushion made out of 3D thermo melted textile for an easy maintenance.
