The leather cushion is fitted into the cubical aluminum frame, demonstrating the contrast in texture of hard metal and rich leather. KO1 was the beginning, developing into KO2, which has an aluminum frame only in the back. KO3 concludes the series with all the aluminum taken away, leaving just a cushion. This design could not have been realized without a method for joining a traditional Itarlian leather craftsmanship with the corner detail of the aluminum frame with artisan work.
