Drawing their inspiration from two traditional Japanese art and craft techniques of origami and furoshiki, the Tokyo-based practice h220430 (established on April 30th, Heisei 22, hence the name) has realised this easy-to-assemble children’s chair called ‘Owl’. Made from a single sheet of a lightweight EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate), the chair’s straightforward, demountable design aims to ‘help nurture children’s creativity’ while making the chair storage and small-space friendly.

In an attempt to ‘bridge the gap between high-design and flatpack furniture’, the Stockholm-based design studio Form Us With Love have developed this series of semiflat-packable furniture in collaboration with a new Scandinavian brand, One Nordic Furniture Company. Named after the Japanese slang word for ‘convenient’ as well as the Finnish tradition of bentwood, the pared-down design of ‘Bento’ features characteristic broad legs and both of the products; the chair as well as the table (available in three different sizes), can be easily assembled in few steps, with no need of additional tools or manuals. The collection will be launched during next week’s Stockholm Design Week 2012 (6 – 12 February) at ‘Form Us With Friends’ exhibition at The Swedish Museum of Architecture.
