drill design: village for time&style all photos by takumi ota

japanese studio drill design has developed the ‘village’ series for local furniture manufacturer time&style.

the ‘village chair’ derives its form from the windsor chair, aiming to solve some of the difficulties of the classic furniture icon, such as the visible joinery of the legs, the inconsistency of the spokes and the angle of the seating. drill design’s choice to work with the windsor chair was due to its recognizable form, which remains in people’s minds. from this they have developed a comfortable seating design using modern woodworking techniques, lessing the amount of material needed for production, meeting the high cost performance that is expected in today’s modern lifestyle. the series also includes a simple stool with similar proportions and lines.
