Characteristic form and modular structure – Kaiva is a soft furniture system that allows its users to create their own set. The line was inspired by an image of stacked stones. According to the concept, various configurations are based on just few elements, that can be freely combined and modified. As its name means conversation in Japanese, Kaiva can serve both as a place of collaborative work and informal meetings as well as a place of individual focused work. Featuring soft form, touch-friendly fabrics and large colour palette, it introduces positive atmosphere into a workplace. This range can be used in office spaces, hotels, waiting areas and public places.
I’m inspired by things that happen on the periphery and at the intersection of disciplines, cultures and experiences. Regardless of the scale, form or style of the product, designing “experiences” is always the priority. Frame, material and detail is a form of communication with the user.
