Design by Khodi Feiz
In the 1950s, Artifort blazed the trail of innovative design with the Congo and Pinguïn chair, designed by Theo Ruth. Niloo is following in its predecessor's footsteps by applying the same technique that involves two elements seamlessly fitting together. Through this fully upholstered design, we pay tribute to Artifort's history while setting our sights on the future.
Designer Khodi Feiz explains: 'For me Niloo is all about the synergy of practicality and comfort. Imagine having to haul a fauteuil up three flights of stairs or the space-saving attributes during transport. And when slid together a simple chair emerges, almost iconic in image.’
