The piece we are sharing today is inspired by one of the most famous traditional types of clothes. The Kimono Armchair is a piece of furniture that explores the formal essence of the traditional Japanese clothing, gets inspiration from its soft textures and pleats.
The fluency of the kimono’s textile, the horizontal panel that wraps around the torso and the covering of the human body are all aspects considered when aiming to reach a specific grade of mimesis—halfway between immediate evidence and excessive distance. Just imagine those kimono pleats covering your body and you’ll understand why the armrests look like that.
Different production techniques gather to result in a coherent, elegant and harmonized lounge seat that aims to pay tribute to the kimono. Each piece is made of light-colored wood and a black leather cushion, and a metal detail holds the chair back. Such an elegant and timeless piece can be used for any modern interior, from industrial to rustic, and due to the calm color scheme it will easily fit most of spaces.
