Artek Kiki Lounge Chair
Ilmari Tapiovaara, 1960
The Kiki Lounge Chair 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 Lounge Chair is joined in the Kiki collection by the Kiki Bench, Sofa, and Low Table. Modular in nature, the pieces 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.
