Character and masterful design collide in this surprising anthology of lights and furniture

K5 explores the power of character when combined with functionality and performance in these three unique pieces. Each one bursts with life, from the extroverted Lola chair to the elegant December lounge and the romantic whimsy of the Arch pendant light. A strong response to K5’s commitment to sustainability and circularity, these pieces continue the K5 Furniture legacy of designs which become instant classics.

Family-owned K5 Furniture are known for shaking things up. Leaders in sustainability and circularity, their holistic business practices are completely unique – focusing on reuse, restoration and regeneration in a ground-breaking “full life-cycle” approach. Today, they’re pushing things even further with the release of three exciting new designs.

1. Lola Chair by Skandiform

Lola Chair lights up a room with cheerful character. A vibrant design just bursting with personality, Lola Chair is an instant classic which will be treasured for generations.

Lola Chair is constructed with metal tube framing and an upholstered seat and back by Sweden’s sustainable giants, Skandiform. Known for their playfulness and unique perspective, Skandiform never fail to deliver designs full of delight.

“Lola is a chair that wants to be your friend. Lola’s strong personality is the exclamation mark that will add character to any room and contribute to a great atmosphere,” says designer Margot Barolo. Learn more about the Lola Chair with K5 Furniture.

2. December Lounge Chair by Nikari

Shown here with the April Tables, the December Lounge Chair in black leather is a new release fresh from Norway’s leading furniture manufacturer, Nikari. Designers Jasper Morrison and Wataru Kumano were inspired by the elegant simplicity of Nordic design in their creation of the December range, which features two lounge chairs and an ottoman.

The December range is characterised by a light, minimalist look supported by fine craftsmanship. This gives the range its timeless effect, which makes it ideal for both modern and traditional interiors. Any piece from the December collection can blend seamlessly with private homes or public contexts such as hotels, restaurants and lobby areas.

The December chair is a masterpiece of organic materials. Balancing solid wood frame and an upholstery made from natural materials, the December Chair projects a grounded persona of strength, simplicity and comfort. Flexibility and personalisation are a breeze with Nikari; the frame is available in oiled ash and oak as well as oak with a smoked oak stain, and there are multiple upholstery options including traditional linen canvas and natural-tanned leather in black, nude or cognac.

3. Arch Pendant Light by Oblure

A sweeping ode to the beauty of historical arches and vaults, the Arch Pendant light provides a warm glow which travels from arch to arch. An alluring design with a sense of direction and purpose, this fixture is ideal for workplaces, meeting areas and dining rooms.

The fitting provides sculpted, energy efficient lighting where it is needed most. Other features of the Arch collection include the Arch Pendant and the Arch Circle, similarly inspired by the alluring curves of historical architecture. Explore the Arch Collection with K5 Furniture.
