The Kayar collection in enriched by 8 new bright colours.

Kayar is the Tamil expression for plaited coconut fibre rope. For Ettore Sottsass and Christopher Redfern, a conceptual intervention in the “culture of sparsity”: the idea of an industrial product which is part of a random natural process. A “primary” building technique of India translated into a cutting-edge technological product.

Kayar is obtained by adding fragments of natural coconut fibre to a mix of rubber. The technological fulcrum of the project is the mixing process, specially engineered by Artigo to obtain a characteristic random act of the distribution of the fibres onto the surface.
Kayar is made in 1.9 x 10 metre sheets and in 610 x 610 mm tiles, 3 mm thick, in 24 different colours; also available in 610 x 610 mm loose-lay tiles, 5 mm thick, in 4 colours.More
