The Kiki Sofa has a frame made of distinctive oval steel tubing.‎ The upholstery offers clean, smooth-edged contours that provide comfort and support.‎ Compact in size and, like a mannequin, appealing in any colour or fabric, its overall effect is one of memorable simplicity.‎ The collection also includes the Kiki Bench, Lounge Chair, and Low Table.‎ Modular in nature, the pieces in the collection can be combined in any number of configurations, while their compact size means they fit naturally into smaller spaces.‎ Announcing a departure from designer Ilmari Tapiovaara’s earlier work, Kiki employs a clean-cut design idiom.‎

This product is available as a 2 or 3-seater and in various fabric options.‎
Seat and back: fabric upholstery or leather upholstery

The Kiki collection employs oval steel tubing as framework in conjunction with surfaces that display distinctive planes and smooth-edged contours.‎ Kiki was designer Ilmari Tapiovaara’s first series to feature a consistent system of matching parts; the collection includes a stool, a bench, a small side table, a lounge chair, and a sofa.‎ The resulting look is iconic in its simplicity.‎ When presented at the Milan Triennale in 1960, the Kiki Chair took the gold medal.‎ Legend has it that a manufacturer approached Tapiovaara asking him to design a product that made use of his surplus of metal tubing.‎ True or not, with the Kiki collection, Tapiovaara announced a departure from his previous work.‎ Kiki is a mannequin, able to be dressed up in numerous ways, to travel effortlessly and assume different personalities.‎ Items from the Kiki family can be teamed in many configurations.‎ Their compact size means they fit naturally into smaller spaces.‎
