Designed for executive and meeting spaces, KORI collection is all about nature. A soft body rounded like a river pebble and a backrest gently curved like a leaf. A diecast armrest which reminds us the organic shell that we can find on the beach. All of these natural curves create a comfortable and elegant armchair, available in three sizes, to work with blending timeless elegance and ecological conviction. Beyond the fact that KORI (Cauri) is the name of an African well-known seashell, recognized to give luck to its owner, the executive chair system takes its inspiration in the forms of nature and is an invitation to travel through your senses to enhance the comfort at work.
