KEALA is an innovative piece of furniture, designed by interior designer Saskia Thomas, that combines a striking design with unbeatable comfort. It features an intriguing combination of narrow armrests, a high, bulky backrest and seat cushions reminiscent of Moroccan floor pillows. It exudes calm solidity with its high, voluminous backrests, sleek, straight armrests and meticulous details such as elaborate double-flange seams.
This design series bears the name of the world-class surfer who inspired it. Keala Kennelly (born August 13, 1978) is a professional surfer, DJ, and actress from Kauai, Hawaii. After spending a decade ranked in the top 10 on the ASP World Championship Tour (WCT), Kennelly took a break from the tour in 2007.
