This quality bar stool is built for strength and durability, designed for style and comfort. Simply, a stylish addition to any contemporary interior.
Shin and Tomoko Azumi
Shin and Tomoko Azumi design furniture, products and stage sets in an elegantly playful style. Both the Azumis were born in Japan: Shin in Kobe in 1965 and Tomoko in Hiroshima in 1966. They met at Kyoto City University of Art, where they studied product design and environmental design respectively. Their first collaboration was a group sculpture project in their first year in Kyoto.
“Above all their work focuses on the manner of using objects and suggests new ways of interacting with them,” wrote Claire Catterall of the Azumis in her catalogue for the 1999 Stealing Beauty exhibition at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts. “Objects should always give us pleasure – not just when we look at them but when we use them.” The Azumis describe their work as being about “changing people’s behavior in a subtle way”.
In 1995, they formed Azumi and started establishing themselves in the design world by putting limited editions into production and gradually winning commercial commissions.
