Helinox and Café Kitsuné have partnered to create a co-branded collection of portable café furniture.
Helinox is a modern design company that specializes in lightweight, portable furniture and accessories.
The new collection uses Helinox’s Café Chair One and Café Table design which are enhanced with customized Café Kitsuné details. These details include brand logos and polyester fabric in an orange colorway inspired by Café Kitsuné’s signature palette.
The table has reversible graphics with one side featuring a chess and checkers board and the other a board for Go, Pente and other games that use a 19 x 19 grid. The table also features a high-pressure laminate top that can withstand high temperatures for cooking on the go.
The Helinox team enhanced the Café Chair with strong hubs, a wide base and large diameter alloy legs to support its tall design. The Café Chair offers a capacity of up to 320 lbs, and is made using DAC alloy and 600-denier polyester.
Launched in 2013 by the lifestyle brand Maison Kitsuné, Café Kitsune is a specialty coffee retailer that incorporates design styles from both Tokyo and Paris.
The brand currently operates a network of twenty-five café locations across the globe. In 2019, the Café Kitsuné brand extended its activities to new business lines including roasteries, bars and restaurants.
The new co-branded product collection is available online at Helinox’s official e-commerce website and in a selection of Café Kitsuné locations.
