Designer Zaha Hadid’s Kuki chair was unveiled earlier this month at the Sawaya & Moroni showroom in Milan. The design was created from a circular sheet of plastic with scored bands around it similar to an old record.

This was folded and bent into shape like an origami-style work of art. The indigo-colored chair has a flat seat and relaxed backrest, with the two curved edges almost meeting at the rear.

It’s distinctive shape resembles a large fortune cookie, with the scored bands adding a textured element to the seat. Dezeen notes that it also features two droplet-shaped holes in either side and the bottom of the chair has been levelled so it is more stable to sit on.
