Isola 8

Building on the success of its previous collaborations with Karim Rashid, Nienkämper introduces Isola 8, the latest concept in lounge seating from the visionary designer of Wavelength®, Blob™and the Kloud® Collection.

Isola 8's name derives from the Italian word for "island" and the number of people that this compelling design accommodates. "The inspiration for my newest work with Nienkämper was to create an oasis from the static world, an island for eight that offers a myriad of seating solutions," says Karim Rashid. The swirling form, he adds, suggests not only an island but also the symbol for infinity.

Ideal for lobbies, lounges, libraries and a wide range of other public venues, Isola 8 combines great aesthetic possibilities with environmentally responsible manufacturing practices. Being able to specify contrasting upholstery for the seat and back affords designers virtually limitless opportunities for creative installations. And from a green standpoint, it's important to note that Isola 8 is constructed with FSC-certified laminated wood products and soy-based foam.

Discover Isola 8 – and escape from the world of static seating.

When cleaning Nienkämper leathers, use a soft clean damp cloth and a mild solution of non detergent soap, such as Ivory or Palmolive, to wash the item. The cloth must be damp, not dripping wet. Dry with a clean soft cloth, blotting any excess moisture away. Leave to dry naturally, do not use heat to dry the surface. A thorough cleaning with a fine leather milk product is recommended on an annual basis to add natural oils to the leather to keep it soft and supple.

In time all leather takes on a patina and spills generally blend into the leather giving a piece of furniture a personal character. Whenever a more serious accident occurs, please contact a leather care specialist.
