Patricia Urquoila outdoor furniture collection,  Vimini, features a dining armchair, sofas and side tables.

The Patricia Urquoila outdoor furniture collection, Vimini, was developed following a conversation with Nanna Ditzel and her Basket chair. “Apart from both being designed by women, we have much in common” says Patricia.

“We called it Vimini because it means wicker in Italian and it sounds like Bimini, an island I like. We used just the right amount of outdoor wicker with a rougher wooden frame. It doesn’t have the same modernist spirit as the Basket but it’s familiar enough that, when you get close, it stirs a memory and makes you feel at home. That’s what it was, more or less—an object of memory.”

The Patricia Urquoila outdoor furniture for Kettal has a modernist look when seen from the side and back. “The chair consists of a basket with large backrest cushions. The braiding is traditional, your classic outdoor fibre.”

“I fancied something really traditional, something a bit modernist, relaxed in the way we treated the fibre. And the Vimini, the chair with its classic braiding and baskets, it’s captivating, and we wanted to make something neutral.”
