Karimoku New Standard is a Japanese based wood furniture manufacturer, featuring innovative, functional objects, made to suit the 21st century lifestyle designed to stand the test of time.
The range of space-saving dining furniture, created in collaboration with German Designer Christian Haas, will be unveiled at this year’s Salone del Mobile.
The Scout collection comprises a horizontal stackable dining chair and table with detachable legs, available in a variety of finishes, made from Japanese oak. The chairs themselves come in a variety of finishes including; moss green, pale pink or pain wood with a transparent matte finish to all pieces.
“The Scout chair is conceived as a compact, versatile seat with the comfort of an armchair,” states creative director David Glaettli in a recent interview.
Crafted via a computerised cutting system which carves each leg and horizontal bar and then finished and assembled by hand, these simple chairs consist of a curved seat and backrest, with a curious profile of upright front legs and angular rear legs.
The accompanying dining table is available in round, square or rectangular configuration with a natural finish. The Karimoku New Standard range of products are available exclusively in Australia through Stylecraft.
Few furniture designs withstand the test of time as well as the HÅG Capisco. Established as a seating icon for over 30 years, the chair is as popular and contemporary today, as the day it was launched.
