Tie Chair by Shigeki Matsuoka

Home > Winners > #111873


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tie

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
The tie chair 2020 is carved with the concept a chair that helps couples get along. Furniture meant to rest one's body, we believe the chair's height and angle of the seating and coping boards, the strength to withstand weight and body movement and other components allow for infinite possibilities. We feel that pursuing the beauty of the chair, to all intents and purposes, is as important as the function it serves. We want it to satisfy the space and time we spend on it to be elegant and meaningful. As a seating for dining or to kick up your feet to enjoy your favorite book, it should suite any desired situation comfortably.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It is created by carving a solid block of wood with a knife in order to achieve perfect seating comfort. This expresses a level of comfort that cannot be achieved with bent wood, cushions or springs. Japanese hand tool planes and knives are essential for this.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The tie chair can be used in the same way as a standard wooden bench. You can sit comfortably with your legs stretched out, or you can lie down and assume various positions.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The "tie chair 2020" in its current form was completed in 2020 after repeated model changes since 2013. It is manufactured in Tokyo, Japan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Usingtraditional Japanese hand tools, the beautiful lines of our furniture are individually hand carved, and not bent, to showcase the natural beauty of wood. We don't use automation machines, but we are developing them as a product.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Every part of the product should have a meaning.It should have an excellent function.This is the ultimate in simplicity.We believe that the pursuit of simplicity results in beautiful design.

CHALLENGE:
It is a chair that requires daily training and skill as a craftsman. From the first model to the current model, it took us seven years to create the current model. The chair is not only beautiful, but it is also very comfortable to sit in and to touch.
