Kiki Goti Unveils Her Latest Collection of Colorful Furniture, Lighting, and Accessories

Standard architectural forms like columns and capitals shape-shift to eye-popping furniture, lighting, and accessories in the hands of the Greek architect and educator Kiki Goti. Goti’s hyper-sensorial designs—what she calls “domestic supergraphics”—begin as collages before prototyping refines the construction. “The material and its performance drive the form,” she says.

Her U+II collection consists of a mirror, side table, and double-arm lamp, and her newly launched I+UU series includes a floor lamp and sconces. They are all made of hard acrylic laminated to form black-and-white stripes, and squishy foam that’s sealed, then painted with colorful lines. (“The contrast creates a moment of visual and haptic tension,” she explains.) The Steel Stripes chair is similar but applies Goti’s beloved lines to industrial materials: painted steel sheet and U-beams. Crafted in her Brooklyn, New York, studio, all pieces are available within a project-friendly two- to six-week lead time.
