Concept

The Kiki collection employs oval steel tubing as framework in conjunction with surfaces that display distinctive planes and smooth-edged contours. Kiki was designer Ilmari Tapiovaara’s first series to feature a consistent system of matching parts; the collection includes a stool, a bench, a small side table, a lounge chair, and a sofa. The resulting look is iconic in its simplicity. When presented at the Milan Triennale in 1960, the Kiki Chair took the gold medal.
