Paradise, Snakes and the Light
by Fabian Peters | 1/16/2018
The Featured Editions are presented at the imm cologne for the sixth time. And this year we present the winners for the best installations.
On the occasion of the Milan Furniture Show 2018, from the on-going collaboration between French designer Patrick Norguet and Alias, comes iko, a family of seats that gives tangible shape to the evolution of a program that started in 2012 with the kobi collection.
The salient element of the project is a smooth, curved shell, characterised by a strong diagonal sign on the sides, and made from a compact, structural plastic material. Connected to the shell is a tubular steel belt, which, besides serving as a mount for various structures, exalts the design of the armchair.
The shell is proposed in two main variants: “naked”, in a plastic material painted various colours, with the possibility to accommodate a fabric or leather upholstered cushion for the seat, and “soft”, in a plastic material co-formed with PU foam and covered with fabric or leather.
Iko lends itself to multiple uses, whether at home or in a professional setting. The versatility of the collection is exalted by combining the shell with different structures: four legs, in steel or solid wood, or a three-legged base with casters.
A rich choice of colours, materials and finishes makes iko both versatile and unique.
Patrick Norguet’s elegant and bold gesture in identifying a diagonal tension makes this piece, though it belongs to a seat type in widespread use, into an original and highly recognisable creation.
