The KK Chair may be the epitome of stark and modern with its straight boxy lines and nearly all-black coloring, but it is intriguingly inspired by the human condition. Specifically a human's heart. The black body represents his or her dark side while the white carved leg symbolizes the purity of his or her good side. An abstract interpretation of the heart, the KK Chair is a stunning piece of furniture that many will appreciate.
Designed by Yukio Kimura for kräfte, the KK Chair appears both light and heavy. This is due not only to the use of a single peg leg and an otherwise enclosed base, but also to the cutout back- and armrests. Plus Mood writes, "As for the form, Yukio Kimura eliminated the unnecessary parts in order to keep it as minimum as possible."
