Okapi, functionality and vanguardism
30/09/2016 - From the lush forests of Africa a wild and trendy armchair arrives to Missana, Okapi is a very original and functional piece designed by PerezOchando, and it is the latest addition to our "The Novelties" collection.

In the same way as the animal it borrows its name from, the Okapi, which front side reminds us to a giraffe and the back side to a zebra, the Okapi armchair reveals a striking contrast between its front side with rounded beech wooden legs and its back side with its metal lacquered legs in the shape of a clip. Is that extreme contrast what brings Okapi to live and provides it with a very strong personality, according to its designers Okapi is the perfect armchair for lobbies & meeting rooms.

The schematic lines that give form to Okapi have helped to create a very ergonomic and versatile armchair that results in an elegant, edgy and comfortable product. In Missana we have reinforced the exceptional design by PerezOchando with an extreme upholstery selection with texture & color duality that emphasizes the contrast in which the designers based their inspiration. We have used Razzle-Dazzle -Ranger and Twill -Rouge fabrics for its launching, both from Febrik.

Okapi is the second collaboration between Missana & PerezOchando, result of the amazing chemistry that we all had when developing our first project together, the cutting edge Ara armchair that was launched last June.
