Boldly named and intentionally provocative, Ak47 has exploded on the Italian design scene. When it comes to design, Ak47 shuns the obvious, ventures into questions left unexplored and enhances simple objects.
Ak47 uses three tools when designing or creating their products: Head, hands and heart.
Based out of Italy, Ak47 strives to produce home furnishings that both celebrate and elevate simple objects. As part of their design process, Ak47 explores how objects have been traditionally used and their purpose in society. This exploration into the historical context of objects aids in their ability to produce items that are innovative, docile and efficacious.
Wood management is the first theme this design firm wished to tackle. Through research and investigation, Ak47 has designed objects that marry function with modern aesthetics. For example, a log rack does not have to be just a home accent piece that holds wood. Ak47 transforms the traditional wrought iron rack into a sculptural piece that not only stores wood but also creates an unexpected focal point in the home. For those who wish to challenge their own ideas about design, Ak47 has products and philosophies that you may find fascinating.
