Giro Sofa

Giro Sofa

DESIGNED BY Vincent Van Duysen
FOR Kettal

The core idea and research behind the Giro collection by architect Vincent Van Duysen was about rope; using it in a different way by sewing each piece together to create the shape of the product itself. A big source of inspiration has been the traditional Orkney chair. As a great example of vernacular product design, this classic has inspired Van Duysen to draw inspiration from the past with an eye to today’s and Kettal’s technology expertise.


A deep level of attention has been paid to the intrinsic qualities of each material: the pattern of the rope (twisted), its thickness, its stitching and sewing details. But also, the joinery details, definition of edge radius, sections of the teak. In Giro, we have some variety of shapes, textures and materials (see the difference between the seating items and the coffee and side tables). And still all the items merge harmoniously together to create a warm, tactile and pleasant atmosphere.
