Ravel: The result of field experimentation in the Philippines, Patricia Urquiola’s work marks a further detailed study of the woven theme. This style of the woven them was inspired by the different fishing net styles found around the world. Ravel’s woven polyethylene backs blended with a metal base produce a modular element in two different sizes, that can be freely positioned to form linear or corner seats or chaise lounge end units. The ottoman can be used alone, or interspersed with the seating to increase the depth.
The Ravel boasts a new dove grey melange-colored polyethylene yarn with a refined natural texture that fully respects the original design of the weave.
