At Salone: Ralik by Arper and Ichiro Iwasaki

Ichiro Iwasaki brought a light touch to Salone this year with Ralik, a modular seating system that’s tough enough for kids to romp around on yet as stylish as silk.

Ralik is made for moving. That is to say, the elements incorporate fuss-free, tool-less ganging, thus encouraging reconfiguration as well as a variety of human postures.

The collection is made of six components: pouf, seat with backrest, and bench, each offered as one- or two-seaters. Bounus: the Ralik tables fit in the slot between seating elements, providing structure and function.

And Ralik is nothing if not colorful. Arper offers upholstery and legs in various colors. The collection also is mindful of sustainability concerns: the legs are made of recycled polypropylene and the collection can be easily disassembled and the upholstery removed for repurposing or clean retiring.
