The KIN seat takes inspiration from the Japanese Kintsugi technique, which tends to embrace the value of breakages rather than seeking to conceal them. It is a highly versatile product that is also perfect for the contract market. Reflecting the Japanese tradition, the designers have taken the different parts of the frame and put them together in an unprecedented visual solution that conveys a sense of seemingly unstable balance. The load-bearing structure is hidden from view and the deceptive contrast between the parts can be emphasized with different materials and finishes. One of the practical benefits of the irregular shape is the compact size of the armrests, which are able to provide sufficient support without being too bulky, so the chair can comfortably fit under a table.

Radice Orlandini designstudio

The studio provides a wide range of services for businesses and if necessary it can oversee the product development procedure right up to the actual production stage. During this process, it can analyse the production costs and – if it is part of the agreement with the company – the strategies required to reach the set target price can be established. Over the years, the firm has built up the expertise needed to cooperate with printers and manufacturers using various forms of technology for materials such as wood, polyurethane, die-cast aluminium, plastics, upholstery and metal structures.
