Yonoh recently released the Clo chair - inspired by the Japanese tradition of Jomon pottery - an ancient construction technique where ropes are used to decorate the surface of objects.

Also very lovely is their Boozo collection - a series of tables and seats with minimalist curves and lines. I especially like their take on getting the chairs off of the floor (reminds me of turning the chairs upside down when I was a schoolkid) - the straight line of the arm rest allows you to tuck the chair into the table.

  1. I love stuff like this. Combines two traditions: Japanese and modernist, and yet feels so young and fresh.
