The Ringer Collection is the first collaboration between Kettal and Michael Anastassiades, and was conceived as a minimal approach to Café dining furniture. The title references the traditional Game of Horseshoes, and links to the gesture of the armrest sitting on top of the legs.
Michael made use of Kettal’s expertise in aluminium fabrication to create a robust collection which is still easy to move and rearrange. The focus is an Armchair with a singular arm and back element. There is a slight flaring on the opening of the armrest as a subtle invitation to occupy the seat, echoing the traditional Chinese Horseshoe Back Chair.
The challenge has been to make the individual elements which compose the chair to appear as if they touch without visible joints, yet providing sufficient structural support.
