The Akiko Chair, German Design Award Winner 2023

The Akiko chair, designed by Oscar and Gabriele Buratti, was awarded the German Design Award 2023 – as a winner in the category of “Excellent Product Design Furniture.” The chair was able to enthuse with its concept and design.

“With its generous, rounded back – the jury commented – Akiko embraces users and promises them a pleasantly soft seating experience thanks to the thick padding. The structure ensures lightness, and the shapes mean that this elegant chair fits in with many interior styles”.

Akiko is characterized by a line reminiscent of traditional Oriental furniture. The Akiko chair has an upholstered seat and backrest covered in the fabrics and leathers in the sample book; the base is made of metal, and is offered in a warm grey finish.

Akiko is here declined in its Lounge version: an armchair that features soft, enveloping volumes characterized by upholstery with differentiated-density polyurethane foam and polyester fiber. The seat, circular in shape, and the backrest, stretched forward to form two armrests, are held together by a “warm grey” painted metal frame. The cover of the Akiko Lounge armchair is removable and can be made in various colors of fabric or leather found in the Gallotti&Radice catalog.

Preview of the 2023 collection, Akiko is available in a 180-degree swivel movement with return with a 4-spoke base made of “warm grey” painted metal with finials.
