Kenneth used rattan for this chair which is a very renewable resource. He uses both rattan poles and strips that are fastened with a technique similar to boatbuilding. Allowing its curved form to standout without a bulky appearance. Kenneth also uses bamboo and Manila Hemp (abaca) in his practice.

Made of aluminum and woven with recyclable polyethylene, this composition of circles forms a lightweight frame bound in place with a tight weave, and covered on the top with insulated acrylic fabric. The seats, handlebars and headrests are made of hand-stitched weatherproof vinyl and fabric.

Chiquita has a secret to tell, revealed only by the senses that recognize ease. The seemingly uncomfortable rattan poles offer a novel take on the trite cushion: they softly sink when sat on, giving a unique sitting experience.
