From designer Jin Kuramoto, EIGHT is a two-layered shell-type upholstered chair. In addition to the plush, supportive seat, this chair gives a lasting, rich impression from its solid wood frame of delicately varying thickness. The configuration of the back, in particular, is a result of Kuramoto’s persevering attention to detail and the excellent capabilities of our technicians. Enjoy the smooth, luxurious touch of solid wood and a feeling of being comfortably enveloped.
After 10 years working as a product designer for a major electronics manufacturer, Jin Kuramoto established JINKURAMOTO STUDIO in Tokyo. He is skilled at expressing the concept and story of a product in its design. He has an expansive work history in a wide variety of project fields, such as electronics, eyewear, and cars, both domestically and internationally. With a design style that is always experimental, Kuramoto prefers getting to know the materials he works with through physical touch until ideas are fully shaped in his mind. He also goes through much trial and error until they are fully realized.
