Furniture for Patio and Balcony from KETTLER

The two series Rasmus and Fuego made by KETTLER put out a new definition of purist garden lifestyle. Clear shapes, comfortable proportions, minimalistic design and cool colours – in 2013, KETTLER presents chairs and armchairs of the brand-new Fuego collection along with the award-winning Rasmus-series.


Cool and yet still fiery: The anthracite colour emphasizes the straight design of the brand-new KETTLER-series Fuego, which is available as a chair and armchair. In its reduced timeless look, this garden furniture series fits well even on smaller areas or balconies. The intelligent material mix of KETTALUX-plus for seating and backrest surfaces and aluminium for the underframe makes Fuego especially resistant and easy to clean. High seating comfort, light-weight transport and high quality processing – this is how Fuego is convincing in every garden. The series is “Made in Germany”: With the production location Germany KETTLER underlines its high quality demand and the long standing know-how in the production of leisure furniture.


Elegant and modern: Rasmus joins aesthetics with the timeless colour combination of silver and white. The neutral colour scheme makes the series a visual highlight in all gardens, on patios and balconies. Stable aluminium is combined with KETTALUX and underlines the clear shapes of this modern garden furniture collection. Special seating ergonomics and the elastic polymer provide a high level of seating comfort. The seating arrangement honoured with the red dot design award 2011 includes stacking chairs, a bench, a stool and table, as well as a two-piece lounger consisting of seating and foot piece with versatile usage options.
