JAPANESE REVIVALISM IN A ROCKER

JAPANESE REVIVALISM IN A ROCKER

One look at the Logan bench and you’ll see that its Japanese through and through. The rocker takes inspiration from a variety of areas including the work of furniture maker George Nakashima, Japanese architecture, calligraphy, as well as design principles such as enso, balance and asymmetry.

Everything from the simplistic joineries to its upward curves edges are a nod to the signature look of Japanese structures. An aesthetic twist reminiscent of George Nakashima’s signature butterflies on the top surface of his works, the Logan bench’s dual plank seats feature laser engraved details of Japanese calligraphic strokes. A bench built for two, this elegant rocker aims to bring people together so that they might work in tandem to create their own motion.

Designers: Shwetha Iyengar, Srishti Singh and Aakanksha Gupta
