The intricate joinery of the 'Mouri' series

The Tokyo-based designer Masanao Furukawa of Rends Design Works practice has developed this series of three-legged, wooden furniture whose unorthodox, labyrinthine joinery was inspired by a Japanese maxim: ‘though one arrow can easily be broken, three arrows banded together cannot.’ The collection, which was presented earlier this year at Milan’s Salone Satellite, encompasses three stools of varying heights, a table and a twig-like coat stand.

Constructed from different types of wood such as; beech, linden, oak and wenge, ‘this furniture series expresses the sculptural beauty of simple wooden structures while providing a great level of comfort and functionality.’
