naoto fukasawa combines natural stone with rich wood to realize his ‘ten’ armchair and ‘ci’ table for driade.

 

‘ten’ (‘sky’ in japanese) is an ample seating design with a moderately reclined back that is upholstered in either removable fabric, or a fixed leather cover. ‘ci (‘earth’ in japanese) on the other hand is a low sitting table that features a rounded calacatta carrara marble top. both are supported by either ebonized european ash or natural mahogany legs, adding a certain warmth to the collection. together, ‘ten’ and ‘ci’ form a lounge area that harmoniously blends into any interior space—from the classical to the metropolitan.

after calling the small armchair ‘ten’ (sky in japanese), I thought it might be natural to name the small table ‘ci’, which designates the surface of the earth. the bond between ‘ten’ and ‘ci’, sky and earth, was instinctive.’ – naoto fukasawa

 

‘ten’ and ‘ci’ by naoto fukasawa for driade were presented at salone del mobile 2016.
