So many prototypes this week. Another one - the Korematsu Chair by design studio kaksikko - is the first in a series of chairs designed for an osteopathy practice in Japan. A mix of East Asian and Nordic influences, the minimalistic form finds its strength from the angle created between the upper rail (which sits on top of the legs) and the lower rail (which rests in inside them). The design expands on the shape of the Maissi Bench from the same studio using simple cylindrical forms to create a chair that is both light and comfortable.
