Naoto Fukasawa's latest chair + table collection
Naoto Fukusawa expanded his charmingly minimal collection with a chair and table set, premiered at the Tokyo Design Week in late October, and by now available at Conde House. Although the Japanese designer’s pieces definitely carry the traces of Far Eastern aesthetics and philosophy with their stoically understated form-language, Fukusawa intended the Kamuy to be an international piece. In his reading, the lack of individuality in this case is an advantage, as he wanted to create a design that can be applied in a wide variety of contexts.
Despite the designer’s intention, the Kamuy chair is still full of character. When viewed from the side, the frame shows and A-shape. While the overall chair is characterised by sleek legs and bars, the armrest widens in the middle to provide enough comfort for the elbows. Kamuy is also a kind of summary of Fukusawa’s previous designs, leading to his most comfortable chair to date.
The seats are available either in solid wood or with fabric covering. Although made from oak, walnut was the initial material, and idea that is still traceable in the final product. The chair’s matching table echoes the slim and airy features of the seating range, making up a sleek and effortlessly elegant set together.
