Two ‘ears’ stand upright to form the back of the armless chair at this year’s 100% design tokyo, next maruni presented new furniture in a joint exhibition between maruni wood industry inc. and maysa co., ltd., entitled ‘nextmaruni + HA-RU mono’. included in the exhibition was an armless chair designed by kazuyo sejima and ryue nishizawa of SANAA. the duo first designed a similar chair
back in 2005. now nextmurani has released the chair in a wider version. the design consists of free asymmetric
‘ears’ which act as the back of the chair. it is made from translucent white beechwood, which speaks to the
chair’s minimalist design.
