The chair’s design expresses the Japanese aesthetic known as “unfinished beauty” through the use of “empty space” (aima) between the arms. This is actualized through a Japanese Oak frame carefully finished with detailed lines and a durable back that supports and encompasses the body. A chair truly unlike no other, AIMA can bring beauty to any space it touches.
