one of the new pieces is the ‘hiroshima chair’, a small chair which follows the same look as the ‘hiroshima arm chair’. the design keeps in mind the texture of the wood used to finish the legs, back frame and top rail of the seat which look as if they are seamlessly one piece. the thin upholstered seat can be removed for easy maintenance.
