Product description

AÏKU is the new collection of chairs designed by Jean-Marie Massaud, both for home and contract spaces. AÏKU comes from the Japanese word “haiku” ( 俳句), and it means a short poem generally composed of three verses. Wonderful poems that in a few words express remarkable meanings; a simple poem, with no lexical frills and conjunctions, taking its strength from suggestions. 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.

Shell made from two-colour polypropylene through injection-moulding, mass pigmented with double finish; gloss outside, in black and white colours, inside with matt saffiano effect in different colours.

The bases are supplied in the same colour of the shell’s external finish, available in: 4-legged round-shaped base, sled base, sled base with armrests, sled base with armrests and table, 4-legged tapered base and 4-legged base in solid oak. Versions with 4-legged round-shaped base, sled bases and 4-legged tapered base are stackable.
