‘traditional series: dining chair with arms’ by naoto fukasawa

for the 2008 maruni collection, naoto fukasawa has created two new collections of wood furnishings. ‘hiroshima’ is a collection of dining chairs and tables which is made from naturally finished beech and oak. the other collection is the ‘traditional series’ which is inspired by maruni’s previous mediterranean and versaille collections. this collection merges european decorativeness with the craftsmanship of japanese woodworkers.
