Product designer, Naoto Fukasawa, sits down in this video to discuss the story behind Japanese furniture brand, Maruni. Fukasawa delves into the unique and sophisticated techniques behind every one of the company’s pieces and their dedication to the idea of since their very first day in 1928. Focusing on their beautiful Hiroshima chair, we hear about the processes behind designing something that not only functions as a chair, but considers all the elements of sitting, from the changing of position to the feel of the wood. Along with this educational narrative, we are also given the chance to see some shots for their factories and workshops in Japan. A near hypnotic film, press play and enjoy.
