Lounge chair / Nextmaruni
“This lounge chair is designed along the same lines as the armchair I designed last year. The aim of the chair is to be an interpretation of the Tatami mat (a Japanese traditional carpet made of rush) and the early memories and experiences it evokes for me.
The points of my interpretation are:
-The chair is to offer soft and comfortable seating despite its square and hard appearance.
-It is understated as a single unit, but it creates a sense of order and reveals its beauty when a number of them are installed in a space.
-To express the visual and structural similarities, the woven rush surface and the firm fabric border of Tatami mat are translated as the leather upholstered seat and the wooden frame of the chair.
I feel this lounge chair has the character of Tatami more than the armchair, because of its lower and wider seating surface.”
