Doshi Levien, a design studio, created highly original woven rope chairs for its client, Kettal.

Although the Cala Armchair has a casual look that's reminiscent of traditional designs of a similar nature, it stands out for its exaggerated backrest that makes it look fit for royalty. In addition to giving it an appearance that's different from most, the rope chairs don't skimp out on any comfort qualities -- an aspect that's enhanced by the soft material, as well as the inclusion of a customizable cushion.

What's especially great about Doshi Levien's design is its versatility however, as the rope chairs suit both indoor and outdoor settings. This is maintained by the durability of its construction, as well as the functional look, which is created by the see-through backrest that simultaneously brings a statement.
