Shin Azumi has always valued 20th century Danish furniture architects, and during his training he analysed chairs by Mogensen, Wegner, Jacobsen and Ditzel. When we asked him to design a chair he accepted with a certain degree of reverence.
Yet the result speaks for itself. Using his own logic, he succeeded in creating a new version of the wooden chair that is much more besides an exquisite piece of furniture. Behind the stringent, simple design a more complex logic can be discovered.
When you sit in a chair, your spine is normally forced to subject itself to the shape of the chair. Yet this is not the case with Nara. While developing the design Azumi discovered that the shape of the chair could support the muscles and ligaments around the spine, and thereby ensure a stable and natural sitting position without undue pressure on the spinal cord.
The €œhorns€? of the backrest also gave the inspiration for the name: the sacred deer that roam freely in the forests around Nara, Japan's first capital.
