Cubikee chair is inspired by tofu. Traditionally, Chinese put tofu in a wooden mold to maintain its box shape during the manufacturing process. The carved cork block is used for seating, bringing a different visual element that represents tofu's geometric looking. The Baltic Birch plywood creates an elegant frame that accommodates the seat.
Cubikee can be used in both office and living room surroundings. Its neutral color and cube looking brings possibilities to blend into various interior design styles.

Material: Baltic Birch plywood, Cork block.

Dimension (W x D x H): 21" x 17" x 22"
