Naoto Fukusawa has long been a proponent of the "less is more" approach to design. Just like at his work for Muji and you'll see that the designer's work is a perfect balance of form and function. That couldn't be more evident in Fukusawa's latest design for Maruni, the Hiroshima Chair.

Its wiry and polished steel frame combined with the sculptural wooden seating brings a beautiful contrast that is both elegant and retro modern. Fukusawa also designed a matching stool and each chair in the collection can be finished in walnut, oak, or beech wood with a polished steel or chrome plated base.
