Tako, designed by Naoto Fukasawa, is an organic shaped chair, created not by wood bending but by applying machine wood cutting techniques. The sculptural soft form was born from Maruni’s processing technique under the motto “Industrialized Craftsmanship”. The chair has a gentle silhouette that is a perfect complement to a white tablecloth. Its most striking characteristic is where the back divides into the front leg and back leg.
