“mikado” convivial seating

“mikado” convivial seating by candido de barros and r’pure studio

The “mikado” is convivial seating has been designed for public areas as a possible meeting point where individuals can choose to interact with each other and engage in conversation. The piece itself is constructed from large rectangular forms which are arranged to create an abstract seating arrangement, giving people the option to sit across, beside or away from one another. Made from a variety of finishes and materials, “mikado” is ideal for a number of environments including lobbies, hotels, museums, parks or even the deck of a swimming pool.
