The IKI handle has a palindromic structural form: the profile in the view from above is identical to that of the frontal view, but reversed by 180 degrees.

An elegant, essential form in which the
clean angles generate a mutable volume
that concludes with semi-circular forms
and suggests the proper grip with its frontal profile.

Simple,
sophisticated,
spontaneous

The concept of balance between opposites derived from Japanese philosophy has prompted the designers to choose the name IKI – another palindrome – which means “simple, sophisticated, spontaneous”.
