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 is an Italian collection of highly comfortable chairs and armchairs featuring an essential image, available in six versions of bases and a wide range of finishes.
This elegant version comes in two options: with a 4-legged round-shaped base in steel tube or with a 4-legged tapered base with injection moulded tube in rectangular section, both bases are painted in matt white, matt graphite grey or chrome-plated.
