The bird chair was created in the image of a bird spreading its wings before flight. The cantilever
backboard is supported by a frame where the arms extend backward. Our goal was to offer a chair
with a unique presence and a new modality.
The surface of the deep seat and the secure hold at the back provide stability and comfort in a
dainty chair. The attempt to reduce the thickness of the seat surface as much as possible brings
the thin design to the threshold of structural strength. Although this requires calculating the
surface thickness of the seat in consideration of the point of contact with the front and rear legs, we
successfully reduced the thickness to the limit, which adds lightness to the overall design. When in
actual use, the appearance from the back and the elegant beauty from the sides are important for a
chair. This chair embraces a special presence as a frame extending from arms that resemble wings
and the backboard.
