Ikigai (pronounced Ick-ee-guy)

Ikigai is a Japanese concept, a formula for happiness and contentment “a reason for being,
encompassing joy, a sense of purpose and a feeling of well being”. Mokum’s Ikigai range is an evolution of the La Primavera collection - adopting the same key themes of feminine design, visual optimism and bringing the outdoors in, but shifting to a more Asian aesthetic.

Given our close geographical proximity to Asia, we share an inherent love of simplicity,
quality and craftsmanship. This was a key source of inspiration for the collection which
includes a preference for natural fibre, complex weaving techniques and an organic
wabi sabi sensibility, celebrating beauty in imperfection.

Ikigai Part I offers a foundation on which to layer the forthcoming patterns upon and is comprised of two gorgeous wide-width linen semi sheers, and a timeless linen upholstery. Launching alongside are two Mokum classics which have been recolored and reinvigorated. Our beloved plain designs; Pure and Vintage Velvet, reinvented as Vintage Deux. Completing the offering is Gabrielle, a new high-performance multi-colored upholstery with the added benefit of having a FibreGuard finish, building on the success of Tahiti.

Part II of the Ikigai collection will be launching early in 2021. This second installment features three Japanese inspired digital prints, a dynamic woven geometric, supported by further drapery and upholstery plains and a majestic wallpaper panel, completing this thoughtful collection.
