The REPOSE chaise, REPOSE armchair and polished steel CUT FORMS side tables offer an aesthetic narrative of sculptural form and poised silhouettes in a soft landscape of inviting luxury. Counter seats and dining chairs in OKHA'S signature pragmatic and poetic design codes complete the picture of individuated design.

Introducing The REPOSE Armchair by OKHA Design

Newly launched, the REPOSE armchair continues the aesthetic mandate begun by the REPOSE collection of seating. Designed to be supremely comfortable and enveloping, the asymmetrical form of the REPOSE seat and backrest is intended to gratify the intuitive act of sitting. In any position. Facing in any direction. This versatility naturally extends to its functional position in a seating composition, encouraging a formal freedom of arrangement that suits the dynamic requirements of contemporary living spaces.

Both feminine and futuristic in feel, the composition of curvy forms, subtle angles and asymmetry that distinguish the REPOSE reference a retro modern mood of sophisticated lounge culture expressed in the colour nuances of the upholstery and polished chrome base.

CUT FORMS are side tables as small monuments of positive and negative form. To materialize CUT FORMS, OKHA Creative Director Adam Court coaxes a new order from a rudimentary rectangular block by carving away in swift precise movements, shapes that when removed reveal a totemic, futuristic and re organized mass. The electropolished metallic finish transcends time. It is past, present, future, maximal, minimal, reductionist, industrial, glamorous. A capsule possessing many states existing as one.

"This is not about destroying one form to make it speak but creating a new form with another language" says Court.
