Maruni Collection 2011: Lightwood and Roundish

We have released Maruni Collection 2011 — the two new furniture series — at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile.

Roundish by Naoto Fukasawa literally has a striking roundish curve in the back and seat. The view from the back is especially beautiful. The back is created with three different curvature. This exquisite curve in the back and seat lets the sitter fit comfortably as if the chair is wrapped around your body. This chair gives you a sense of ease as well as relaxation.

Jasper Morrison’s Lightwood is also literally named for it’s lightweight feature- only 2.5 to 3kg. It is suitable for variety of uses due to its different choice of the seat; fabric, leather, webbing and mesh. Its elegantly curved legs and the lightweight looking structure are some of the reasons for its sculpture-like beauty.

Both chairs made use of the masterful craftsmanship and the fineness of machine manufacturing that Maruni Wood Industry excels in. From this well-thought design and exquisite construction, we are sure that you will be able to feel its comfort, the strong durability which makes it long-lasting, the flavor that adds over time, and the fascination and possibility of these wooden furniture.
