This sofa’s legs are made one by one by hand at a lostwax casting foundry located in Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture. When finely decorated Buddhist altar objects and utensils of tea ceremony ware are cast with brass or bronze, a prototype mould is first made with wax, whose outside is then coated in a limestone film to create a casting mould. Molten bronze or other metals can then be poured into this mould in a method called “lost-wax casting.”
The crosspiece connecting the four legs is cast with a bronze extrusion method using a unique die at the only such factory left in Kyoto. Further, the side table paired with the sofa is made at our factory in Hokkaido, and the sofa’s main body is produced in Miyagi Prefecture.
The sofa is completed after inner wooden components, polyurethane foam, and synthetic cotton come together to form a base, and the entire body is covered with fabric or leather.
Just like a concerto, each one of our products is made through industry cooperation from production areas throughout Japan.
