Japanese furniture company Conde House has collaborated with designer Naoto Fukasawa on a new collection of chairs and tables called Kamuy.

Another wonderful series by Fukasawa that showcases his minimal design, and high-quality craftsmanship.

Naoto Fukasawa: Hiroshima Chair

Here’s a great video of Naoto Fukasawa speaking about the elegant Hiroshima chair that he designed for Maruni. The video also gives a glimpse into the craftsmanship that goes into making the chair.

The Encounter Collection

This short film by Process Creative for furniture and bag designer Stephen Kenn is just perfect. It’s beautifully shot and the story is very emotional. It really highlights how an object can carry so much history and sentiment.

The Wishbone Chair

The Wishbone Chair was designed in 1949 by Danish designer Hans J. Wegner for furniture company Carl Hansen & Søn. The classic chair has been in production since 1950, and is always been handmade by the finest craftsman. The chair is made of 14 parts, and requires 100 separate processes, which takes around 3 weeks to complete.

What’s so impressive with Wegner’s chair designs is that they’re over 50 years old, but still look very modern. He was ahead of his time.

Design Milk got a behind-the-scenes look at how the chair is made, and they took some great photos of the process.

The video above also gives a glimpse into the quality and craftsmanship that goes into every chair. They are expensive, but worth every penny.
