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

    It has always been about the wood. Shohei Kato opened a small woodworking shop in 1940 from a longstanding timber firm he acquired in Kariya. The first letters of the town name combined with “moku,” as in “mokuzai” ( “wood”) provided the brand name. Furniture followed within 2 decades, along with several brands under the Karimoku umbrella. Then in 2009, with his grandson Hiroshi Kato as vice president, the Karimoku New Standard branch launched to develop works with international designers in the modern design arena.

    The star roster includes Swedish studio TAF, the Swiss team Big-Game and Dutch duo Scholten & Baijings. Among them is David Glaettli, who also serves as KNS brand creative director and dubbed its credo as “high-tech and high-touch.” The highly skilled Japanese carpentry and hand-applied painting that are a part of the parent company heritage are integral to KNS. It also looks forward, revitalizing native forests by targeting undervalued, sustainably grown hardwoods. Advanced technologies have elevated the low-diameter chestnut, maple and oak trees, once turned into wood chips for paper pulp, into something of lasting beauty. The aim, notes Hiroshi, is “furniture that will be used and loved for more than 100 years.”
