Project Description

The sui arm chair features arms carved from solid wood. We thought that a simple chair with only the necessary functions would be the most comfortable and most beautiful.
This chair is made of hard wood, yet it is so comfortable that it feels soft and you will not get tired even after sitting for hours.
The form, which pursues functional beauty, is not only beautiful to look at, but can be used in a variety of sitting positions. The streamlined leg lines when viewed from the side allow the buttocks to sit deeper when sitting deeply. This allows the user to sit in a naturally beautiful posture. The seat and legs are also individually handcrafted.
We believe that every part must have meaning and superior functionality, that this is the ultimate in simplicity, and that the pursuit of simplicity leads to beautiful design.
We believe that the ability to mass-produce these chairs made by hand with one-of-a-kind quality is a new value that cannot be found anywhere else. It is said that the world of manufacturing will become more difficult in the future with the development of AI, but we have nothing to fear if we have the power and individuality to constantly create new creations.
