AÏKU SOFT is the new collection of chairs designed by Jean-Marie Massaud, both for home and contract spaces. Launched at the imm Cologne fair, the chair is now available in padded shell and in chromed base for both shells.
AÏKU comes from the Japanese word “haiku”, and it means a short poem generally composed of three verses. Due to its incredible shortness, it requires a considerable synthesis of thought and image.
The meaning and the sound of this word reveal the project’s concept, to reconcile the paradoxes of uses and sensitiveness. AÏKU can be radical, but at the same time is a refined architecture designed for domestic environments, as well as offices and public spaces.
AÏKU SOFT caomes in many trendy finishes, such as the gold or pink chrome, black or nickel chrome. The shell can be coated either in leather or in smart single-colour fabrics and modern textures. There is also the wood-legged model, for those who are fond of a traditional and warm material.
