Description

By any other name, 1 Seater would also be called a lounge chair—and in the case of Elephant, quite an inviting one at that. Beneath the plump proportions, designer Christian Haas' comfy seating starts with firm but pliant cushioning consisting of a durable pocket-spring core topped with premium foam. Another innovation is the upholstery fabric, a high-performance material made from recycled synthetics with a pleasingly wooly texture. Natural woodgrain frame crafted of sustainably grown solid chestnut.

    Brand

    Karimoku New Standard

    A traditional Japanese maker of wood furniture for 70-odd years, Karimoku turned an exciting new page when it relaunched in 2009 with an international roster of contributing designers as Karimoku New Standard. The reboot was twofold—to create modern pieces using its heritage of Japanese craftsmanship techniques and to revitalize native forests by targeting significantly undervalued hardwoods. That precious resource, from low-diameter chestnut, maple and oak trees, had previously ended up mostly as wood chips for paper pulp.

    Meanwhile, the design world was gobsmacked by the company’s splendidly functional, often joyously colored furnishings emanating from its collaborating partners. From European, Scandinavian and Japanese creative talents, they include Swedish studio TAF, the Swiss team Big-Game and cult Dutch design duo Scholten & Baijings. The revived Karimoku concept, termed “high-tech and high-touch” by brand creative director David Glaettli, melds the latest technology with unstinting hand-finishing for a truly collectable array of refreshingly unique standouts.
