The Lukis Chair by Studio Hiji for Cappellini Collection is a rattan and wood seat made in Indonesia as part of the 'Dignifying Indonesian Rattan' product launch that was held in November 2016. The aim of the show was to elevate the traditionally humble material and use it in different ways to great effect. The Lukis armchair is an experiment using small rattan cores for structures that are bent through the main frame and then stacked on top of each other resulting in very rigid construction. The chair also displays the unique character of the wood with detailing at the joints using lathe techniques. Its spare lines are made possible because the wood base, unlike rattan, needs less material for structural support.
