Nido …

57_KE-ZU_SANCAL_NIDO_RAFA GARCIA

 

The Nido Armchair designed by Rafa Garcia for Sancal.

Nido, Spanish for nest, means home to a number of species and inspired Rafa García to create this small armchair. The seat or “nest” is supported by a steel or hand-crafted ash wood frame. The upper part provides “branches” into which a comfortable seat is fixed.

Tartana …

31_KE-ZU_SANCAL_TARTANAThe design studio Nadadora has taken inspiration from a pre-industrial epoch for their post-industrial product.

In Spanish, a “tartana” is defined as a carriage with a domed cover on two wheels. Sancal’s modern-day Tartana is an acoustic dome, a totally new product, designed to protect us and provide us with the privacy that we yearn for in open spaces.

The warm materials used help to create a cosy atmosphere: the structure is ash and the fabric is a foam laminated, bicolour felt. It is available in three variants: grey/navy blue, moka/wine and beige/lime. Both sides have the same acoustic properties and can therefore be placed either way round to achieve different colour co-ordinations.

The construction of the fabric in three layers creates the optimum phono-absorbent effect.

While the structure is only available in one measurement: 150x200cm, the fabric comes in two sizes: XL or XS. Each Tartana is supplied with two fabrics which can both be XL, XS or one of each (the mixed version). The XL fabric has an overhang of 40cm and that of the XS is 20cm.

The wooden structure can be stained any colour in our collection, although Nadadora recommends “natural”, “silk-gray” or “anthracite” stains for the grey/navy fabrics, “natural” or “walnut” for moka/wine and “natural” or “silk-gray” for beige/lime.

Pion …

28_KE-ZU_SANCAL_PION_IONNA VAUTRIN

The success of the Pion stools and occasional tables brought KE-ZU supplier Sancal back to Ionna Vautrin to include a range of dining tables.

Just as before, chess pieces have continued to be the inspiration for the new designs.

Ionna has also incorporated another colour to add to the mustard, olive, peach and sky blue colours already in production: shadow grey. She uses a contrast of high gloss for the lacquers with a matte, wax finish for the natural wood.

Unlike the coffee tables, the lacquer on the dining tables runs across the entire base, right the way up to the edge of the table top.

Now available from KE-ZU and through our national distribution network!

Nudo …

25_KE-ZU_SANCAL_JUAN IBANEZNudo Bench designed by Juan Ibáñez for Sancal.

The name of the collection, Nudo, refers to the knots found in wood in its natural state. The legs replicate the sinews of a tree-trunk, as if they were branches, thanks to painstaking lathing and carving. This is one of the Nudo tables’ most characteristic features. Asymmetry is another hallmark. The asymmetry is generated by the various heights of the cross beams which structure the dining table, and by the three legs of the small round tables.

Following on from his success with this family of tables, Juan has added an ingenious multifunctional piece: a table/bench with two tone cushions.

Casta …

18_KE-ZU_SANCAL_JM_FERRERO_CASTAJosé Manuel Ferrero, of Estudi{H}ac, presents Casta, a small armchair based on a castanet, one of the most emblematic Spanish instruments: the image of a lady clapping together two halves of clam-shaped wood is famous the world over.

Just as two halves of clam-shaped wood are clapped together with a castanet, the armchair’s curved metal structure is made of two elements that have been welded into place.

Casta’s light structure is a radical departure from traditional thick, padded solutions for an armchair. By using a technologically advanced fabric, even the need for elastic or leather webbing has been eliminated. The cushions have been integrated into the cover itself to provide the comfort you would expect from a Sancal product. As the structure, in part, is provided by the fabric, this product is only available in Omega by Gabriel.
The metal structure is in a matte, textured finish to which warm, smooth ash wood armrests provide a contrast and remind us of the castanet’s wooden touch. The structure and armrests are available in black, light grey or brown.

Available exclusively from KE-ZU and through our national distribution network.

Tea …

14_KE-ZU_SANCAL_JM_FERRERO_TEA

Tea Bar Stool.

 José Manuel Ferrero continues to develop this extensive range for KE-ZU supplier Sancal. This time a bar stool, follows the success of the dining chair. The curved shape of the back supports an ergonomic posture and provides a lasting seating. The slim frame manages to be both solid and spongy, thanks to the injected polyurethane.

 

Like their predecessors, the bar stool incorporates the hexagonal quilt and the possibility of creating both bi-coloured and bi-textured pieces.

 

Tea stool can be upholstered in fabric or synthetic leather. In leather it is only possible to upholster the unquilted areas. The fabric for quilted areas must be plain (without patterns).

Rew …

12_KE-ZU_SANCAL_RAFA_GARCIA_REWRew Modular Sofa designed by Rafa Garcia for Sancal.

This new creation by Rafa García is tremendously versatile, and can be used for a variety of diverse projects that require pieces for resting, eating or working.

Rest. An entire family of chairs, sofas and modules, as light as they are comfortable, can be used with two different types of arm: one is high and thin like the back and the other is low and soft, like the base of the design.

Eat. The “nutritious” part corresponds to an ample number of benches which can be used with a dining table. The benches can be used alone, or together with upholstered wall pieces. The benches are available in two depths (57 and 72cm). The least deep is the archetypal dining bench, providing a firm, upright sitting position. Moreover, the finish of the arms in a corner permits compositions with angles to be made. The deeper version is ideal to fill with scatter cushions and create an informal environment, perfect for long postprandial conversations. Rafa’s piece provides two back heights, 95 and 115cm. The low back creates a light design, while the higher back provides some privacy.

Work. The productivity at work is directly related to our concentration and feeling of wellbeing. These versions of the sofas, modules, and chairs enable a certain degree of privacy in an office setting, or the hall of a hotel. Rafa has also designed a bench and a couple of cushions to complete the programme.

The feet are available in steel lacquered black, or ash, which can be stained to any of the colours in the Sancal collection.

Nap Sofa …

7_KE-ZU_SANCAL_RAFA_GARCIA_NAPNap is a new sofa (and sofa bed) designed by Rafa Garcia for Sancal. The quilted details are inspired by the old woollen mattresses. The sofa is converted into a bed in only two movements, and vice versa. A small compartment hidden under the structure is ideal to keep the bed clothes and cushions tidied out of sight. The compartment is finished in natural eucalyptus and the feet are stained black.

Nap is now available from KE-ZU!

Barnaby …

5_KE-ZU_SANCAL_PERRINE_VIGNERON_GILLES_BELLEY_BARNABY

Barnaby designed by Perrine Vigneron and Gilles Belley for Sancal.
Perrine & Gilles have transformed the anti-aesthetic practice of covering a sofa with a cover into a work of art. This tradition was particularly prevalent on Spain’s Mediterranean coast and was crying out to be updated. From this experiment, a duo of sofas and chairs were born.

After a seemingly infinite amount of prototypes, KE-ZU supplier Sancal managed to cover the structure whilst respecting the volumes. As the cover is loose, it can be easily changed to create a new look. The coloured taping adds a touch of colour and marks the lines of the piece.

Barnaby can be considered a “neo-transitional object”, using a term coined by Stefano Caggiano . In its rounded corners one can imagine cat-like ears, giving the design a lovable, almost animated feel, hence the pet name.

Barnaby is now available from KE-ZU and will be on display in our Sydney showroom in the coming months. Stay tuned for more details!

An explosion of colour

3_KE-ZU_SANCAL_ELENA_CASTANO_LOPEZ_BANG

Bang! Cushions designed by Elena Castaño López for Sancal.

It takes an expert to present seemingly impossible colour combinations with others that have been perfectly coordinated. Elena’s studies in fine art have enabled her to create the Bang! cushions with a dazzling use of colour. Classic trimmings adorn the edges of the piece, continuing the theme of contrasts, this time set against the avant-garde patterns themselves. Available in the following colour combinations: cream-apple, yolk-klein, snow-grass, lemon-earth, khaki-purple, toffee-turquoise, sky blue, coral or pearl.
