khodi feiz combines color and simplicity to form the ‘niloo’ chair for dutch furniture brand artifort. a contemporary reinterpretation of the two-part african chair, ‘niloo’ slides and interlocks to form a seat both comfortable and structurally sound. feiz and team, who have worked with artifort previously, looked to company’s history to find an innovative way forward. drawing from the congo and pinguïn by theo ruth, ‘niloo’ offers a modern aesthetic while staying true to seamless two-part composition.

 

‘niloo’ is currently on display at artifort’s booth at salone del mobile milano. visit artifort at hall 16, stand F30 until april 17th, 2016
