A collaboration between Hisae Igarashi and Akita Mokko Studio.

Hisae Igarashi’s eyes gleamed as she told me about Akita Mokko’s innovative bentwood furniture production technology and the people dedicated to preserving it. Her chairs are characterized by gently rounded bentwood lines that cradle us in comfort. The bluish green color scheme evokes the trees and skies of the great outdoors, yet conveys the subtle cool image of a precisely engineered product while highlighting the welcoming warmth of natural wood.
