Description

The initial and core idea and research behind this collection was about the rope, using it in a different way by sewing them together in order to create the shape of the product itself. A big source of inspiration has been the Orkney Chair. As a great example of vernacular product design, this classic has inspired me to draw inspiration from the past with an eye to today’s and Kettal’s technology expertise. Whereas in the Orkney the rope was made of real ropes, Giro hinges on the flexibility of recycled polypropilente rope and on the necessity to produce such a collection industrially. There is a respect for the tradition and craftsmanship but translated to an actual modern up to date version taking all the profit of the actual technology and know-how of Kettal. Based on a natural material to a very sustainable material that can face all kind of weather. This was our first collaboration with Kettal. It was a quite intense and efficient way of working together. The process of developing these new materials was really a challenge for them and for us and it seems that our mutual understanding resulted in a very nice collection, which expresses both Kettal’s and VVD’s vision.
