Contemporary Solid Wood Low Chairs, Asia 21st century

$ 4,180
  • Description
    Contemporary interior design refers to the style of the moment, which means it is constantly evolving with time. These low chairs are about recognizing beauty in humble simplicity while showcasing exceptional craftsmanship.

    Low chairs have been common around Asia for centuries. These types of chairs, like the Japanese “zaisu” or the traditional Indian “Pida” chairs have very short or no legs at all. These chairs are inspired by these predecessing traditional seating types while displaying a contemporary touch. This is most apparent in the smooth look that makes them appear just as much sculptures as functional furniture pieces. The quality of woodworking is exceptional and so is the respect for the material; the wood is left in the focus of these chairs, displaying its natural qualities, including the naturally occurring cracks. In this aspect, these chairs can be understood through the wabi sabi philosophy, a concept that motions us to constantly search for the beauty in imperfection and accept the more natural cycle of life. This philosophy is very much relevant today, in a world that is riddled with high-stress levels, fast-paced living, and unrealistic pursuits of perfection. At the same time, the design is very streamlined with a lacquered finish that smoothens the raw surface of the wood. The peculiar shape of the backs and the circular seats are decorated solely by the stunning grain and pattern of the wood. The short rectangular legs are connected in the front and serve a more functional role.

    As demonstrated by these chairs, hallmarks of the contemporary design style include clean, curved lines, natural materials, and attention to quality. An ethos of intentionality is the focus of this aesthetic point of view, which extends to an appreciation for quality materials and artisanry.
