The theme of this design is a fusion of Japanese material and other material. Furniture combined with rush (tatami) that has been used in Japanese daily life through the ages and metal is little seen because mostly wood has been chosen for it. The combination of tatami and wood is the very “Japanese (Zen)” style in a global sense, however, it may be said that it has limited coordination. On the other hand, this bench is simply unique but also has universality. It takes on modern and minimal characters by combining with aluminum, and matches not only for Japanese but any taste of spaces.
NUI is a nascent, wood-specific assembly system that seeks to redefine our connection and interaction with wood. The system is made up of a growing collection of polymer connectors, designed to create diverse: spatial, dimensional, aesthetic and structural configurations. Moreover, this innovative, hands-on approach to wood manufacturing allows for high-end, solid-wood designs to be: assembled, lock, unlocked and if need be, disassembled. As it evolves, this modular system aspires to improve the way and efficiency with which this life-giving resource is utilized.
Julia — meticulously crafted using ash wood slats radiating from the chair’s core supported by bars and screws. The form originated by playfully twisting a circular paper armlet, like a Mobius strip. Then came about the idea of wood and metal as materials solidifying the concepts of radial and continuous elements. Each material was carefully thought of, measured and calculated - the numbers, sizes and gaps in between each wood slat and bars, up until the holes on the wood slats. A cushion is added for balance. However, even without it, Julia stands in complete comfort and strength.
