Tatami mat chairs
Our unique tatami mat chairs are created by designer Seitarou UTSUNOMIYA who used a prototype made by famous architect Koji FUJII (1888-1938). Inspired by wooden lattices on Kyoto traditional townhouses, these chairs are a perfect mix between the Japanese elegance and the modern need for utility. They can be used on both Japanese traditional tatami mat and other occidental floors. Not one nail or screw is used to make these chairs, they are entirely assembled piece by piece using traditional techniques of Kyo woodworks and joinery.
