Foster Retreat Stool NF-BS01

Description

Norman Foster’s backless stool showcases the soft transitions of his namesake collection with its signature blended-timber joints, contributing to the seating’s eloquently simple composition and timeless proportions. Realized via the exquisite wood craftsmanship of Japanese maker Karimoku, the solid-oak construction is available in a choice of stellar finishes to complement a range of fabric or leather options for bespoke upholstery. The internationally regarded architect’s NF Collection was originally conceived for his foundation’s retreat for work and study on Martha’s Vineyard, suggested by the natural beauty of the setting.

Brand

Karimoku

Inspired by the postwar program that birthed modernist masterpieces from the likes of Richard Neutra and Charles and Ray Eames, Japanese furniture manufacturer Karimoku launched a sister brand in 2019 with a similarly architect-designed objective. Karimoku beckons creative partners from across the globe to turn out furnishings based on a chosen structure’s interior. Guided by study at Karimoku’s base in Aichi, Japan, the collaborating designers have an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the company’s extensive heritage and unparalleled expertise as that country’s leading producer of wood furniture.

In the same way the original Case Study Houses established in the 1940s by Arts & Architecture magazine defined a new era, so Karimoku takes a holistic approach, with each architect or designer’s collection imbued with coherent style suggested by the intended setting, rather than merely the aesthetics of an individual piece of furniture or accessory. Made entirely from natural materials, the initial grouping referenced the Kinuta Terrace apartments in Tokyo with its large outdoor courtyard, where frequent collaborators Norm Architects and Keiji Ashizawa Design added to an existing set of furniture the architects had recently designed for the brand. Then, and in the collections that have followed, the richness of the materials, mindful production and a timeless appeal foresee that Karimoku is bringing about the icons of tomorrow.
