Designer Ini Archibong’s West African heritage energizes Knoll’s modern design legacy in this corresponding set of tables and chairs. The collection—which provides a place to gather both indoors and out in hospitality spaces, offices, and on campus—is named after three generations of Archibong women who share the name Iquo, and it embraces the moniker’s feminine spirit in balancing elegant curvature with strength and durability.

Archibong, the son of Nigerian immigrants, found equal parts inspiration in West African spirituality and midcentury American furniture, resulting in sculptural silhouettes that feel both airy and robust.

Ini Archibong is an industrial designer, creative director, artist, and musician. His work is characterised by a deep interest in master-craftsmanship and its intrinsic relationship to technology – both modern and ancient. Taking inspiration from the study of architecture, environmental and product design, as well as lifelong passions for mathematics, philosophy, and world religions, he seeks to apply his vision and methods across a wide range of disciplines. He is a strategic consultant for high-profile clients in the luxury, sports, hospitality, music and technology sectors.
  ​
The son of Nigerian parents who came to the United States as academic scholars, Ini was born and raised in Pasadena, California, where he graduated from Polytechnic School and the Art Center College of Design. After a period living and working in Singapore, and traveling widely, he moved to Switzerland to pursue further studies – earning a master’s degree in luxury design and craftsmanship from the prestigious École cantonale d'art de Lausanne (ECAL).
 ​
Ini has received numerous awards and has been praised widely in the media for his vision and the quiet, poetic elegance of his oeuvre. In 2019, he received Distinguished Alumni awards from both ArtCenter and Polytechnic in his hometown of Pasadena. His design for the Pavilion of the African Diaspora (PoAD) at the 2021 London Design Biennale was awarded the Best Design Medal.​
