Oaki in black
Spring 2019

The expressive Oaki dining chair captures the simplicity and artistry that characterises traditional Japanese wood craftsmanship. The chair is made in solid oak and was originally launched with smoked oak or oiled oak finishes to choose from. This season, Oaki is available in a rich black colour. The black finish is dark and deep, coating the wood with a soft sheen that highlights the wood grain’s enduring appeal.

Oaki’s design was created through a fusion of techniques. They enabled the designer to conceal the chair’s joins, giving Oaki a refined character that looks almost seamless in appearance. Oaki is
characterised by legs that angle backwards from the seat, meeting the floor behind the chair rather than underneath it. Each leg rises from the floor to the full height of the chair, cradling the backrest between them. The position of the legs makes the chair come alive as they appear to step backwards.
