While the seat slope, back pitch, and horizontal arms remain unchanged, the front legs are rotated to give the chair an emboldened forward stance, almost like a bulldog. We’ve enhanced the rigidity by linking the back legs with a curve to match the seat back and strong finger joint connections. In the spirit of longevity — and in the tradition of ancient Japanese shipbuilders — we’ve also put a wooden nail through the joint.
Support behind the seat back is also superior to typical chairs due to a shaped support that is finger-jointed into the arms. The effect is gorgeous and highlights some very sophisticated woodworking techniques.
All hardware is marine grade stainless steel--all of which are flush recessed into the wood for a streamlined aesthetic that is built to last.
