Kazuya Koike mixes textile-dying with furniture design
The innovative project sees Koike applying the ink-dying solutions of Gisen to an understated chair with a plywood surface. Gisen’s ink-dying technique made it possible to color the wood brightly with the woodgrain still visible, through the process of previous bleaching. To make the dye more visually prominent, Koike settled on maple as the base material, as its light color serves as a great contrast point to the colorful dye. The result is an understated, classic piece of seating with a distinctive color gradation finish.
