Kinuta‘s design combines both existing and updated parts from the brand’s factories.
“Like branches of a tree, each element of the chair almost flows or grows from the others, making the chair both strong and elegant in its nature,” Norm Architects designer Frederik Alexander Werner said.
“Smooth curves and transitions underline the craftsmanship and ‘high-tech, high touch’ philosophy of Karimoku.”
The brand aims to create the “ideal balance” between the man-made and machine-made, resulting in highly crafted industrial pieces that evoke the Japanese sense of beauty.
Though the Kinuta chair’s design is simple, it has a “warm and welcoming feel to it,” Werner said.
