The Ivy chair was designed by Satoshi Itasaka, a very talented and awarded designer who we met around a japanese tea ceremony in Ginza, Tokyo.
We saw his Ivy Chair and its message was very clear.
Living in the city where nature is excluded to the utmost limit, we tend to forget that we depend on the power of nature and only remember it when natural disaster strikes. Satoshi believes that it is essential that we should appreciate nature and always respect it.
The white but otherwise realistic leaves of “ivy chair” act as a metaphor for the exclusion of nature from the city.
The artificial white color of “ivy chair” merges it into daily life without a sense of incompatibility. The intention of “ivy chair” is to make you feel comfortable as if you were surrounded by trees and flowers. Whenever you sit down in the chair it will prompt you to think about nature over its function as a chair.
"h220430" was Established on April 30th, Heisei 22 (Heisei is the current era name in japan).
Their design activities focus on lighting and furniture, etc.
They want to design not just primary shape of the object but secondary communication deriving from the messages in the objet. They hope their work will produce communication and provide an opportunity for people to rethink and act against many difficult problems such as deterioration of global environment and continuous conflicts all over the world.
