takeshi iue

‘habit chair’

takeshi iue is strongly influenced by both traditional and contemporary japanese design. based in adlelaide, austalia, iue runs his own studio producing furniture and lighting with subtle and minimal forms. during the state of design festival he showcased a variety of pieces including his autumn stacking stool, bamboo side tables and black gallery bench. two of the stand out designs included the tripod table lamp made from solid wood with an LED lighting unit and the geometrical habit chair that was designed with an aesthetic focus on the backside (since this is what is seen when the chair is tucked into a table).

  • Well Yaya,

    I don’t know your age, but I think it’s time to go back to some book…and read.

    This young designer is really interresting. Minimal approach, green thinking, excellent craftmenship…

    Maybe this guy is not Philippe Starck, but is dooing a great job with the budget he have…

    Great work.

    love the lamp.
    would look great as a floor lamp!

    no, he’s not Philippe Starck
    but he’s going the right direction though, to produce stunning work as well!

    well done
