'Nara' chair by Shin Azumi for Fredericia Furniture

Tokyo- and London-based Shin Azumi has designed a new chair for Danish brand Fredericia Furniture, which, with its horn-shaped backrest, has a playful zoomorphism about it. According to the manufacturer, the back element was the starting point for the designer as he set about creating the piece. ‘Azumi first defined the top edge and vertical supports of the backrest to get the best level of comfort and to create maximum support. All superfluous material from the backrest was then removed,’ says the company.

“This project began as an experiment to express the excellence of bent plywood in a maximized way.
The aim was not only to explore sculptural beauty, but to also maximize functionality within a minimal structure. The final result is a stool with a mono-coque structure, created from a single sheet of plywood. Unlike other stools there is no distracting division between its parts. The seat and body of the stool seamlessly merge from one to the other in a single fluid motion. The stool has a large contact area between itself and the floor to disperse the pressure”, the designer explains.
