Cord Chair by MARUNI + NENDO via The Contemporist


Japanese wood workshop Maruni and highly acclaimed Nendo design have teamed up to create a ultra minimal wood chair. At first glance it is hard to believe that this chair is structurally sound. Great detail has gone into creating this illusion of lightness, hollowed out solid wood pieces are used to slip over the 9mm internal metal frame creating a slim leg with a diameter of only 15mm. Each chair is hand made and takes about a month to produce.

Currently this chair is only a Limited Production.
