The concept of this chair is a simple, well-balanced stackable chair made of solid wood. Because
the rear legs needed to be placed outside of the seat frame for stacking, there is only one surface to
join the rear legs and the seat frame, so it was necessary to strengthen the joint in order to ensure
long-term use and sufficient withstand loads. This is the challenging part, in addition to the fact
that solid woods scratch easily. By adding strength to the rear legs and the seat frame, we finally
created a wooden stackable chair with good balance. The backboard features curved solid wood.
Although a wider backboard adds a little more weight than side chairs, it delivers good support for
relaxed seating comfort. The large backboard brings pure nature into your room and creates a slow,
rich time. The soap finish helps preserve the texture of the solid white wood. The matte black paint
instills a unique quietness to the appearance. Polished with beeswax, walnut enhances the gentle
texture of the solid wood and its quiet tones of color.
