kashiwado-chair_01

Originally built for a famous sumo wrestler, this Kashiwado chair is a spectacular piece of sculpture that goes beyond the traditional art of woodcrafting. Designed by Isamu Kenmochi for Tendo Japan back in the 1961, the chair is made of carefully selected blocks of Japanese cedar (with the most tree-rings) that are manually polished and coated to an immaculate finish. A visual treat for our eyes, it’s the exotic, natural feel that makes this chair a perfect solution for those who’d like a little Japan in their homes. [via YouShiki]
