Okha: The London Collection
Okha introduces The London Collection – a sophisticated and elegant collection of furniture for the modern home.
Let’s take a closer look…
VERB dining chair
VERB is the title of one of OKHA’s most admired chair designs and one of seven pieces which make up OKHA’s London Collection. The design, along with its sibling barstool variant, CARLOTTA, draws clear inspiration and gives a humble nod to the beautifully articulated and defined style of self-taught architect and metal worker, Jean Prouve.
Elegant and sensual, the uninterrupted and rhythmic form of the Miles armchair is a singularly lyrical expression of movement and form. In the same manner that a musical tone or note shifts in tempo, its cadence modulate, the visual contour and shape of MILES carries the viewer on a visual journey that traces the form of the chair from base to seat to backrest in one perpetual but nuanced motion.
Carlotta has a shared genealogy with the Verb dining chair; both have adapted the iconic Prouve elongated triangular leg as the pivot and substance of the structure, it is a form and design that shows intent and movement. Available in a broad range of timbers and finishes, the VERB & CARLOTTA are adaptable to many environments.
Central to OKHA’s London Collection, the STM has gained iconic status in Southern Africa. A pivoting armchair whose width and breadth are an exceptional display of paired down luxury, The STM expresses a great deal with few words. A tautness of line combined with great ergonomics and exceptional comfort are key elements that have made STM such a classic.
MILES + LEAN side table
As much sculptural artwork as side table the Lean is a study of geometry’s relationship to gravity, this table presents new options of proportions from every angle. It is this approach of creating beyond pure design and beyond ornament, that brings to bear works larger than the sum of their parts.
Named after the New York artist Barnett Newman, Barnett is a dining chair that defines space in a 360-degree axis. Barnett is visually stimulating from all angles thanks to its beautifully crafted framework. It is a chair of great comfort, grace and refinement.
The Frank barstool articulates and defines space with a structurally anchored and masculine frame. When viewed from front or back the steel frame creates a dynamic visual graphic, the result of a single supportive vertical beam executed at the perfect incline. It is the combination of this unique graphic line work and luxurious leather upholstery which makes the Frank barstool such a paradox of minimal restraint and visual substance.
