49

An armchair interwoven

Extreme craftsmanship expresses the future 20 years from now.
This armchair was the first product with this concept.

The 50 mm acrylic board is entirely transparent, from the
minute bubbles to the points where pieces connect.
The seat is covered with 49 types of wood collected from
around the world, including rare Brazilian rosewood, ebony,
and wood from the same type of plane trees that line the
Champs-Élysées in Paris, creating a beautiful poetic
mosaic pattern.

Designer Kyo Yasuda conceived of a design that draws out
as much as possible the vitality and story-like nature of the
wood used in the work of Shigeki Miyamoto, Japan’s first
furniture modeler.
The 49 different woods speak to Mr. Miyamoto’s idea of creating
something unique.

The support pieces, made of transparent acrylic, are paired
with a pure rod of stainless steel, bringing the presence of
the seat to the forefront through stark contrast.

The SOLARIS armchair’s wooden seat floating against gravity
plays homage to the floating islands of Solaris, a historic
science fiction movie.

The ultimate chair highlighting the proud craftsmanship of
Japan and extreme construction from the best and rarest
materials.
