One of the "icon products" by the Nordic company, is undoubtedly the Acapulco chair that takes its name from the legendary beach town located on the Pacific Ocean in Mexico. In the ‘50s, Acapulco was an oasis of peace between the with its waves and cocktails by the ocean used to welcome the biggest stars of Hollywood, who never get tired of admiring the beautiful view from its sunny terraces.
The updated version of the typical Acapulco chair maintains its retro spirit and glamor that form its timeless style. It is produced in a facility in Mexico City providing jobs for hundreds of workers. This armchair by Ok Design is an elegant solution for your moments of relaxation. It is comfortable and versatile, and it takes care of your well-being at home, but also in the garden or on the terrace. The solid structure of galvanized steel and powders coating ensures the ergonomic shape of the seat to favour a correct posture.
In the admirable effort to create healthier working spaces, the brand has developed a special PVC for plastic used in the creation of Acapulco and Condesa chairs. It is a material free of phthalates and heavy metals, very dangerous substances that are often used by manufacturing companies, precisely to safeguard the health of its employees and end customers.
Speaking of a conscious recycling of raw materials, it is also interesting to know that Ok Design reuses the broken strings of some models of chairs to create new ones. The Acapulco chair was also created in the baby version, for the children's room. A comfortable seat, colourful and fun that the kids will immediately love!
OK Design constantly produces wonderful, cutting-edge and truly original products; after the famous seats we just mentioned, there is also Center, the stool version with a very special design. The Stool Center can be purchased in four different colours: blue, petrol blue, yellow and red, while the structure is glossy black. The seat is made of a series of strings that converge in a single point and are fixed on two coaxial stainless steel circles. The peculiarity of this piece of furniture is that it is versatile and multi-purpose. In fact, thanks to a special PVC piece available in charcoal gray that you can attach to the outer ring of the stool, Center can quickly become a coffee table or a comfortable footrest.
Clearly, the production by OK Design is not limited to seats. This brand also creates many different furnishing accessories such as tables, bookcases, pillows, magnetic wall organizers, shelves, door plants, lamps and kitchen accessories, all made with the typical Nordic essentiality.

One of the cult products of the OK Design collection is the coffee table specifically designed to accompany the Acapulco chair; we are talking about Bam Bam, made of metal and MDF, and inspired by the rays that form the series Condesa and Acapulco.
Elegant and refined lines, for another creation signed by the Danish brand: the Table On a String, modern and essential and with the typical Nordic personality. The table is an essential furnishing accessory in every home; if we choose a model that is also decorative and innovative we will be happy to decorate the room with a few elements creating a strong visual impact. The table is formed by steel rods and wires which act as a supporting structure, while the tabletop can be either in linoleum or laminate.

To make unique and exclusive the rooms of your house, OK Design has also thought to the walls. Babuska is a modular system consisting of eleven MDF boxes, and just like the famous Russian dolls that give the name to the product ( "Babushka" in Russian), these boxes can be slipped one into each other, as they all have different sizes. The wide range of Babushka modules allows you to store any object of your daily life tidying up all spaces and making them organized and functional without sacrificing a touch of elegance and sobriety thanks to the neutral colours of the complement. You can place them against the wall forming a library inspired by a lively geometric composition, or you can also use them separately mixing them with other items. It is only up to you!
Ok design continues a tradition of avant-garde Nordic style, as regards both the study of the materials used and social commitment, creating products with a vintage mood that never go out of fashion.
