Sitting on Bob

Bob's not your uncle, but a new masculine garden chair designed by Hella Jongerius.

First Published in

“Bob” is a new interpretation of the typical garden chair for a club garden set.

Designed by Hella Jongerius for Spanish manufacturer Kettal, the sturdy aluminium frame gives the chair a rather masculine look. From the back of the chair, however, the construction is light and elegant.

The seating is soft with visible stitching connecting the different voluminous ribs. Yarn is winded around the armrest, adding detail and a further masculine touch.
