Designed in collaboration with THINKK studio, Kaoi's Ebba chair collection is composed of three deckchair-style seats that can be brought to life with four variations of armrests.
The two Bangkok-based studios channelled the geometric lines that defined the 1980s Memphis movement founded by Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass.
The armrests – Han, Somma, Franz, and Mujoel – boast bold forms in the shape of squiggles, zigzags and arcs reminiscent of the confetti-like pattern called Bacterio that Sottsass designed in 1978.
These shapes are paired with vibrant hues including buttercup yellow, midnight indigo, olive green and shiny chromium.
Each of the different components of the chair – its armrests, seat and pillow – can be mixed and matched according to the user's personal taste.
They wanted to create a design that would allow the customer to freely mix and match and recreate their own chair based on their individual personality, because they believe that design defines you better than you define yourself.
