KIKI | Leather small sofa By Artek
Leather small sofa
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.
