An Outdoor Chair That’s Both Sturdy and Delicate

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec collaborated with Kettal on the aluminum Stampa chair, which was designed to be both sturdy and delicate. Suitable for both indoors and out, the chair incorporates several different types of aluminum manufacturing techniques that give it its shape and durability.

An injection-molded ring connects the stamped seat, back, and the hydro-formed legs while reinforcing the entire shell. The calyx-shaped metal shell features holes in an organized pattern that are made by punching metal sheets, giving the chair a slight textile look.
