2011年度 グッドデザイン賞 受賞
|Poppy Chairの概要||The Poppy Chair is from our 2011 Collection which was inspired by the love of nature and the flora and fauna found within. Shapes of flowers have always been quite magical, and mysterious. When nature creates something with such symmetry, color, and effervescence, it should be celebrated. This is what we did with the Poppy Chair. The shape resembles that of a Poppy flowers petal, and we wanted to create a feeling of settling into a petal of a flower when one sits on the Poppy chair. Furthermore, one can also decide how many of these petals one wants on the flower.|

Naturally using rattan is a more environmentally friendly option to make furniture than wood, since rattan is a weed and grows fast and in abundance here in South-East Asia. Thus we urge people to use rattan as a means of eliminating deforestation of our precious wood resource.
The style of the Poppy Chair is very relaxed, thus it offers a shape that we can sit on and let our mind and body enjoy the experience of lying on a petal.
Poppy chair is an art piece to be viewed and admired, as well as to sit in. It lets the owner of the piece decide, how many petals they want to add.
The poppy chair is interesting in the viewpoint of relevance to the industry, because it offers and very different option in the furniture, interior, and art segment.

Thus showing society and the environment that we can use tradition, and combine it with original and creative designs to create something truly spectacular.
