The chair is named after the second largest island in Japan - Hokkaido. The warrior weapon shuriken is stylized logo of the island - a seven point star. All of the chair's features and the overall look are totally inspired by the Asian culture.
The main construction is made of two different materials such as wooden parts and metal pipes. Seat and back-rest can be produced of leather or fabric. Different colors which the customer can choose will allow it to fit in every interior.
This chair is inspired by the amazing Eastern culture. You can see the influence and feel the spirit of Asia. I tried to use materials, colors, symbols that are related to the Asian culture and when you see the chair to take you back to the Eastern traditions.
