To furnish such disparate spaces as waiting rooms, staff rooms and public or private meeting areas, you need an adaptable furniture system. Enter designer Ichiro Iwasaki of Tokyo-based Iwasaki Design Studio, whose Kiik system, an unusually versatile furniture collection, aims to give buyers as many options as possible. To that end, Kiik tables come in square, rectangular, triangular and quarter-round shapes. The upholstered pads are available in almost all colours. And the system itself, which includes ottomans, benches and consoles, can be arranged in endless configurations. Iwasaki’s work suggests that irregular spaces needn’t be poorly designed – and that people should be able to sit comfortably in any room they enter.
