Partly inspired by the grand ginkgo tree in Hida Takayama that is over 1,200 years old, the Ginkgo Collection features a distinctive 3-sided shape that forms products for dining, living and working. Not only does the comfortable, ergonomic three-legged chair use less material, the design also allows several chairs to fit neatly around a table making it ideal for small restaurants and compact homes. The collection takes a sustainable approach to furniture construction, utilising production offcuts of premium oak that provide an individual and attractive pattern that is unique to each piece.
