The Sensitive Light Chair
Light and slender yet strong and sturdy. The Sensitive Light Chair is inspired by the architecture of Shinto shrines and temples: the seat and legs form a single structure made of bleached and anthracite gray beech wood that is carefully finished by hand. With a clean, elegant design and discreet presence, it reflects a Japanese aesthetic vision based on traditional oriental woodworking techniques.
FRAME: snow white or grey charcoal-stained solid beechwood,finished with transparent water-based or solvent-based coating.
UPHOLSTERED SEAT: elastic fabric panel, padded with polyurethane foam.
EXTERNAL COVER: non-removable cover in grey fabric or dark brown leather.
In the forests of Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan’s main islands, the freezing winters slow the growth of trees, permitting the development after many years of high quality, dense timber. Time & Style taps into time-honored customs practiced by artisans involved in the construction of Japanese shrines and temples, an important activity with a history extending back over a millennium. This legacy is a major source of inspiration for Time & Style as it seeks to create a collection of modern furniture marked by authenticity and a deep appreciation for the past.
