Created by Norwegian designer Martin Solem for HAY, Kofi is based around the simple concept of a flat-pack wooden frame construction and glass top. Martin Solem uses clean dimensions and proportions to highlight close attention to detail, resulting in uncluttered aesthetics with distinct lines and a timeless quality.
The FSC-certified frame comes in different water-based finishes, while the top is available in plain or reeded glass, offering numerous design combinations that makes Kofi ideal for a variety of settings and styles.
