Starting from its genesis, Aiku is not a simple chair, but The chair that adapts to everysituation. The product name is derived from haiku, a Japanese word meaning a short poeticcomposition that, by using few words and with no lexical frills and conjunctions,expresses great concepts.

The meaning and the sound of this word express the project concept: joining theparadoxes of end-uses and feelings. Aiku can be either radical and at the same time arefined architecture for home, working and collective spaces. Two years after the launch of the collection, due to the commercial success and the highliking got by this family of chairs on international markets, the company was boosted toextend the range by introducing a new variant as well as new finishes.

The collection features a wide variety of stands, from the simplest and most architectonicones, to the most refined and domestic ones, as well as a very rich range of finishesthat is further enriched and completed by introducing new trendy variants such as goldchrome, pink gold chrome, black chrome and nickel chrome.
