Bo Chair by Koizumi Makoto

Home > Winners > #59096


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Bo

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
Takao Murakami whom I have respected was a master of Windsor chair. After Murakami had passed away, I wanted to succeed his spirit. I aimed to design a light, easy to sit, yet beautiful and new Windsor chair.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Traditional Windsor styled chair has a structure that fits body with processing the material directly and using bending technique. Respecting this style, we use the latest NC processing machine technology. Thus bo chair has been made as a new Windsor chair.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It required high skill of wood work. For example we shaved out its back upright just like as if the timber is twisted.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The products were introduced to the market in 2013 and was exhibited during Milano salone in 2014.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We carve out the timber while changing the inclination of the cutting tool of the machine, so that a slender and beautiful silhouette appears with a three dimensional twisted shape.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
W420 x D485 H865(SH430)mm

TAGS:
chair, wooden chair, solid wood chair, Miyazaki Chair Factory, Koizumi Makoto, JAPAN, Made in Japan, Windsser chair, craft

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
It is a Windsor chair designed in a round shape by the present woodwork technique such as the back bars cut out as if the wood was twisted. Each of back round bar aligned in different angles firmly supports the back and gives comfortableness.
