Product description

W60 D58 H75 cm

Celebrated Japanese studio Nendo – founded by Oki Sato in 2005 – is known for its minimalist designs, whose reduction belies the consideration and innovation they reflect.

The Splinter Armchair, which comes in three versions – wood seat, upholstered seat, and full shell – is no exception. ‘We splintered each piece of wood as though peeling it away,’ says the designer, resulting in backrests that elegantly divide to become both armrests and legs, and create a harmonious whole. Respecting the material, Nendo went with the grain, so that the wood would retain its original pliancy.

The shell version of SPLINTER offers even greater comfort for users, while maintaining the chair’s pared-down aesthetic.
