KATÀ Hanging Chair by Ferlea

KATÀ Hanging Chair by Ferlea

Isn’t it fascinating to see such an extraordinary design for a hanging chair?

How not to love this chair?!

This contemporary basket chair Kata was designed in 2003 by Enzo Berti for Ferlea , the Italian furniture manufacturer which has made a strong presence in the market since 1960’s and has worked with well-known designers including  Aldo Cibic, Rodolfo Dordoni and Alberto Livore.  The sturdy ball-like rattan seat with a height of 60 cm and a depth of 47 cm, is suspended from the ceiling by way of a stainless steel suspension system.

What did inspire the Italian designer? Supposedly it is based on a chair seen by Berti in Ringo Starr’s house in the early seventies. The designer was there not as a house guest but as a minicab driver and get inspired for this great artwork.  With its spherical shape and line, Kata Chair reminds  of the famous Bubble Chair by Aarnio Eero. He successfully combined the minimalist visual factors with the sturdy warmth of rattan.
