16/05/2018 - With Arkad, the new poufs collection designed by Note Design Studio for Zilio A&C, architecture softens-
“Arkad is the Swedish word for ‘arch’ and is inspired by aesthetics from the world of architecture. We explored different shapes that are characteristic within architecture and tried them out on a smaller scale, until we found balance by repeating the arch shape. The arches have a familiar and uncomplicated silhouette, but together they create a rhythm that brings a dynamic touch to the product”, say the designers.
The poufs provide clear expression together with their petit size, making them perfect for retail, lounge and residential environments. The modules can be used separately or arranged into bigger combinations, to change expression and function to fit the space they are in.
The fabrics that wrap around the structure, made in wood and polyurethane foam, have been chosen very carefully: Febrik and Rohi quality textiles offer high elasticity and softness, as well as excellent aesthetic results. The collection is available in two different lengths and in a corner version.
