Modular sofa: Molo collection by Rodolfo Dordoni for Kettal

Molo is a collection of modular seating designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Kettal.

Manufactured in aluminum, teak, concrete and terrain fabrics, the collection is composed of sofas, a deck chair and a center table.

Molo’s orthogonal geometry is based on a rectangular modularity design, which means it can be easily adapted to suit any situation and optimize the space where it sits. Each module can be taken apart and reorganized, creating new uses and configurations. The design is aesthetically minimalistic with intentionally oversized pieces. On the other hand, the decorative elements have not been emphasized in order to give centerstage to the various combinations of fabric, colors and carefully-selected details.

Molo (or pier in English, jetée in French and embarcadero in Spanish) is a structure built on the shores of an ocean, sea, lake or river which extends from the land over the water; a mooring place for boats, a rest between trips and a refuge from the swell of the waves. Like its namesake, Molo by Kettal offers a place of relaxation and reconnection.
