With its visible framework, the Castor Sofa references Le Corbusier's iconic steel-wrapped seating. Yet, in a feat of exceptional woodworking, Karimoku New Standard's version is constructed from elaborately crafted and joined Japanese oak. The gracefully angled wood surrounds the sides and back of the sofa, looking as good from the back as from the front. Comfortably seating 2, the sofa's cushions are made from high-quality foam and natural feathers for complete comfort. The sofa is among the ongoing Castor series designed by the Swiss studio Big-Game and the Japanese heritage house, both acting on the philosophy that skilled craftsmanship emphasizing sustainably sourced hardwoods can result in furniture that should last at least as long as the tree it was made from.
