The Ini Archibong Furniture Collection Embraces Femininity + Strength
View Slideshow

Designer Ini Archibong has teamed up with Knoll to release the Archibong Collection, full of the design sensibility and influences his work is known for. Described as a café collection, the Archibong Collection consists of two table designs and two chair designs. They’re all suitable for both indoor and outdoors, something we’ve been seeing more of recently and love. All four furniture pieces feature feminine curves, displaying strength and durability while still managing to feel light and airy in aesthetic. In fact, the name of the Iquo chairs is the name of Ini’s grandmother and mother, and his daughter’s middle name. It means “powerful voice,” which seems to translate perfectly to the designs of these pieces.
