Ichiro Iwasaki was a familiar sight in Tokyo’s public spaces, observing the comings and goings of its denizens. “I started thinking about where people find themselves comfortable, how they utilize their space,” the Iwasaki Design Studio founder explains. Back at the studio, he conceived Kiik, a modular system for Arper that supports working, interacting, or relaxing.
Seats with or without backrests come in four shapes, with powder-coated steel frames, die-cast aluminum legs, and upholstery from partners like Designtex and Maharam. Tables in five sizes and consoles in three heights come laminated in natural or black oak, with optional USB ports. Configuration options are practically limitless, but there are preplanned footprints to help the specification process. See at NeoCon in booth 339.
