AÏKU | Training chair with writing tablet
Sled base polypropylene training chair with writing tablet
AÏKU is the new collection of chairs designed by Jean-Marie Massaud, both for home and contract spaces.
AÏKU comes from the Japanese word “haiku” (俳句), and it means a short poem generally composed of three verses. Wonderful poems that in a few words express remarkable meanings; a simple poem, with no lexical frills and conjunctions, taking its strength from suggestions. Due to its incredible shortness, it requires a considerable synthesis of thought and image.
The meaning and the sound of this word reveal the project’s concept, to reconcile the paradoxes of uses and sensitiveness. AÏKU can be radical, but at the same time is a refined architecture designed for domestic environments, as well as offices and public spaces.
A collection of highly comfortable chairs featuring an essential image available in six versions of bases and a wide range of finishes.
Shell made from two-colour polypropylene through injection-moulding, mass pigmented with double finish; gloss outside, in black and white colours, inside with matt saffiano effect in different colours.
Light grey, sugar paper blue, olive green, dove grey combined with the glossy white, dark grey external shell and military green, matched with the glossy black shell.
A wide and varied range of bases enables to use the chair in many places featuring very different needs, from contract, to office and home.
The bases are supplied in the same colour of the shell’s external finish, available in:
- 4-legged round-shaped base in steel tube, painted matt white or matt graphite grey;
- 4-legged tapered base with injection-moulded tube in rectangular section, painted matt white or matt graphite grey;
- 4-legged base in solid oak with a natural, bleached or brown finish
