Kina Ottoman


When David first designed Kina in 2005 it was as an ottoman. But the thin flexible plywood needed to take up the curves was not strong enough to bear any loading. So instead Kina became a light and it was entered it for the IFDA competition in Asahikawa, Japan where it won a Silver Leaf Award. In 2016 IFDA approached us once again, as a past winner, with an invitation to be part of a commemorative exhibition for 2017 to celebrate 10 years of IFDA shows. They asked us to team up with one of their wood manufacturers in Hokkaido with a new design.

The form for Kina was inspired by the sea urchins of the same name found in New Zealand rocky shores.
