NADIA | Lacquered chair
Solid Wood, Maple
The heritage of many of the woodworking techniques used by Japanese carpenters originates from Japanese shipwrights. Inherent in its position as an island nation, it is unsurprising that the maritime industry has been a driving force behind the innovation of wood construction for centuries.
The NADIA series has been developed by focusing on a particular method, known as 'kumiki', which uses interlocking construction techniques. The result is a series of contemporary furniture that harmonizes the design aspects with the high level 'kumiki' structure, as well as giving an affectionate nod towards the wooden vessels of times gone by.
Each of the wooden parts the chair is assembled from are made with curves that precisely fit the overall structure, giving the impression of lightness and creating a sense of stability while sitting. Its simple silhouette and distinctive shell make it suitable for a wide variety of scenes from home to office.
