Zepher chair

The original model of this chair was made 10 years ago in 2006. The characteristic zig-zag line of the chair’s back from the stile to the rear leg brought a completely new design in creating innovative chairs. To reduce the amount of material and cost, a chair is designed to have a shape that uses a primary board (solid wood board to cut out legs) that is as small as possible since the stile and rear leg is made out of one solid wood material. The shape of this chair may seem to require a large wood piece. However, we found an effective element in producing this chair that cannot be identified by its appearance. This chair was born from our endeavor to create a chair that was thought to be impossible together with the people in the furniture factory.
In 2011, the edges of the frame of the original model made in 2006 were chamfered and whittled as a trial production. Conventionally, although the chair’s zig-zag shape and sharp lines gave a fresh impression, it lacked a harmonious effect in the overall design. To solve this problem, the edges of stiles and rear legs were whittled to form a gentle curve, which created a beautiful line on the back of the chair drastically changing its impression. This became the turning point of this chair making it the most manufactured chair among our arm chair products. There are other difficult elements in producing this chair in addition to the rear legs and stiles. To connect each part in a natural form, the backboard is bent and joined with stiles before chamfering and whittling the backboard upper end and stiles since the backboard is made of solid wood. The seat frame is shaved gradually to form a curved surface toward the inside to give an appearance of having a thin seat while maintaining its strength. The “butt joint” method that requires high accuracy was applied for joining each part to obtain a smooth joint surface. This method created a seamless and harmonious appearance to the chair as a whole. A groove is provided normally on a joint surface to hide cracks generated by expansion and contraction of wood. However, the design characteristic and harmonious aspect of the butt joint were prioritized with this chair.
A feature we considered the most important with this chair was to be smooth when touched by hand. During the finishing process, we check all corners and surfaces by hand particularly areas where people may place their hands or where it may contact the skin while sitting down or moving the chair. The smooth and pleasant feeling this chair offers to users was very important for us. Our desire was to make this chair smooth to the touch and offer everyday comfort. This is now one of the chairs that represent our company’s workmanship.
